This trial marks the seventh such trial in London since 2016. The Met has said in addition to the December 17-18 tests, there will be three more, which have yet to be scheduled.
According to the police, these trials, which “will be used overtly with a clear uniformed presence and information leaflets will be disseminated to the public,” are set to take place specifically in the vicinity of Soho, Piccadilly Circus, and Leicester Square.
