Police welcome Premier's changes to NSW bikie laws

A major crackdown on the gangs, guns and criminals behind a spate of violent shootings in Sydney has resulted in more than 500 people being arrested and 900 charges laid. Two Murrays on the launch of Operation Spartan.

Operation Spartan was stepped up over the weekend as detectives targeted bikie gangs and others behind almost 60 shootings in Sydney's western and southwest suburbs this year.

Senior Police say their weekend blitz on bikies wasn't about numbers but about intimidation.

Assistant Commissioner Frank Mennilli says 555 people were arrested, 908 charges were laid and more then 14-hundred intelligence reports were compiled during the concentrated operation, from 4pm on Friday until last night.
