    These names that the police give to their operations, they have to be careful. Operation: STRIKEBACK sounds like they are going to war. If I was a criminal that would be a rallying call to get the battle lines drawn.

    Operation: Restore Confidence sounds less militarized and more civilian-based and helps get people rallying behind the police.
