More police on your streets
We’re changing our Safer Neighbourhoods teams to provide a better service. We’re putting 2,600 more police officers onto the streets of London to fight crime in the heart of your community.
Your larger Safer Neighbourhoods team will develop detailed knowledge of local people, local problems and local crime. You’ll see them out on patrol, on foot or by bike. They will hold ward panels where you can tell them about concerns you want them to focus on and will organise other regular meetings and briefings in your community. They will also staff contact points where you can discuss nonurgent concerns and get crime prevention advice.
The improved teams, using their local knowledge, will have a stronger focus on arresting criminals, reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.
Where you need us when you need us
Crime moves around London, so, using up to date intelligence, a neighbourhood inspector will direct the extra officers to fight crime where and when it occurs in your neighbourhood.
Every ward will also get a dedicated police constable and ~ police community support officer.
The new teams will respond more effectively to your concerns.
Safer Neighbourhoods teams will be available later into the evening, at peak times, seven days a week. The teams will be supported by other units including emergency response and patrol and investigative and specialist policing teams to ensure that we also investigate the most serious crimes and look after the most vulnerable victims.
