A Greenwich policeman was congratulated today after seizing his 100th car in the last year during a recent operation

PC Mike Price, who is based in Greenwich Park, reached the landmark in the London-wide Operation Cubo on March 30, focusing on uninsured drivers and criminal activity on the road.

PC Price said: “I feel extremely privileged that I can contribute in this way to making London’s roads safer for everyone.

“I hope my contribution makes a difference to everyone’s insurance premiums and adds value to the driving test.”

PC Price, who has a four-year-old and a two-year-old son, joined the Royal Parks Constabulary in 1990 and the Met in 2007 when the Parks became part of the wider London police force.

He is an ex-army musician where he played the trombone and percussion and is a drum major with the Army Cadet Force.

MPS commander Adam Hanstock said: “PC Price has achieved an incredible number of seizures and I commend this ongoing commitment to Londoners by helping to reclaim London’s roads for law abiding drivers.”

In addition to seizing 498 cars across London, 100 people were arrested for a variety of motoring crimes.
