Today Sir Bernard Hogan Howe launched a six hundred strong awesome fighting unit to protect the streets of London! The Counter Terrorism Specialist Firearms Officers – dubbed C-men – can deploy by road, river or air in the event of an emergency.
Skilled at every type of combat, and armed to the teeth, the lethal fighting force will make Londoners sleep better at night. The Met Chief is determined that in the event of a terrorist attack, no way will London be unprepared!
In the wake of the Paris terror attacks, the C-Men will patrol the capital and can be at the scene of any in a heartbeat. Armed police will not become the norm, but right now, we need them.
