  BBC NEWS | UK | Q&A: Operation Trident
Operation Trident was set up in 1998 in response to a string of what are often called "fl-on-fl" shootings and murders in the Lambeth and Brent areas of London.
As the violence continued, the operation was extended to cover the whole of the capital a year later, with a special focus on drug-related gun crime.
Operation Trident now exists as a dedicated unit within the Metropolitan Police, which helps officers in local police stations investigate shootings and collate intelligence from across the capital on suspected gunmen, firearms suppliers and gun converters.

FOLLOWING ON a dramatic increase in gang-related shootings on the streets of London last month, the Metropolitan Police's Operation Trident Squad has launched a new advertising campaign which aims to encourage the public to work with police, and not let guns and drugs ruin their community.
