Over five days New South Wales police have executed a total of 52 Firearm Prohibition Order (FPO) searches across Sydney’s south-west.

Operation Strike Force Hawk was established in October 2021 to tackle Sydney’s escalating gang violence and combined the talents of over 345 serving officers and detectives.

The operation was initially established to focus on the disruption of organised crime in the Southwest Metropolitan Region, as has since led to the seizure of more than 80 firearms, 3300 rounds of ammunition, $2.9 million in cash and prohibited drugs with an estimated street value of around $9.1 million.

The recently state-wide expanded strike force has resulted in the arrest of over 105 people.

Results from FPO searches conducted from 30 May to 3 June 2022 led to the seizure of $150,000 in cash, 1.5kg of cannabis, 150 grams of methylamphetamine, numerous prohibited weapons and three stolen motor vehicles.

The coordinated police action saw seven men arrested following the discovery of a ‘clandestine’ laboratory which was dismantled by police with the assistance of the Drug and Firearms Squads Chemical Operations Unit.

Region Commander and Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith said that this was the first time that the organization had sought the assistance of general duty officers.

“This allows us to target and disrupt organised crime at the street, mid and upper-level simultaneously within a specific organised crime network or more broadly to prevent violent crime,” Smith said, adding

“Last week, we targeted the who’s who of criminality in Sydney’s south-west: Rebels, Finks and Lone Wolves OMCG – you’d be hard pressed to find someone in that world who didn’t get a home visit.”

Over the course of the week a total of 15 men were arrested.

The task force will continue to work closely with the Raptor Squad, Task force Erebus and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission.
