Thousands of extra police officers are watching over the streets of Britain and cities are reporting no major disorder so far on the first weekend since rioters raged through suburbs and town centers.
Metropolitan Police said Saturday 1,222 suspects have been arrested and 704 of those charged in connection with the unrest in London, which saw the worst violence.
Hundreds of stores were looted, buildings were set ablaze and five people died amid the mayhem that broke out last Saturday in London and spread over four nights across England.
Across the country, more than 1,700 people have been arrested.
