Photo Gallery: Can you identify these people?

Barking and Dagenham police have released images of people suspected of carrying out crimes in the borough.

The CCTV footage captures people who police want to question about a variety of crimes from theft to assault.

The images were taken on buses, in shops around the borough and cameras on the street.

Supt Gary Buttercase explained why CCTV images are important.

“For many years Barking and Dagenham Police have worked in close partnership with the council’s CCTV control room,” he said.

“While the operators often alert police to incidents that they see happening on camera, the benefits of CCTV does not end there.

“Often, when a crime has been committed, officers can pick up the trail of the suspect and/or the victim on recorded footage from nearby cameras.

“We may even recover footage of the actual crime being committed.

“The Post has assisted us by printing CCTV images of people who are wanted for questioning in connection with crimes, but who police have not yet identified.

“Identification of those pictured in the stills can ensure that a criminal is brought to account, or it may mean that police can eliminate someone from their enquiries and move forward with their investigation.”

If you can identify any of the people in the images printed call Barking and Dagenham Police on 020 3276 1117 or call Crimstoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
