News from your local police winter 2012/13
Your dedicated police team
Your local Safer Neighbourhoods police team are tackling the issues that matter to you by working with partner agencies to find lasting solutions. Please contact us with any concerns you have, or visit the above website for more information.
We listen to the concerns of the community and our priorities are set by local people who sit on a neighbourhood panel. You said the following priorities were important to you:
• Drugs and Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)
• Drugs and Anti Social Behaviour (ASB), Agar Grove and Barker
We have done the following to tackle these priorities:
Drugs and Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)
We have moved a large number of people from the area using our dispersal powers. These individuals have either been involved in youth ASB or drug related activity. Once dispersed, this power prevents those involved from returning to the location for up to 24 hours. Whilst we have a dispersal notice in place we will continue to utilise and enforce this throughout 2013. We work closely with Community Safety Team at the council and continually view CCTV from the area. This has had great results as youths identified from CCTV have been visited by council officers and police. On most occasions, warning letters were sent to residents involved, warning them of further action being taken with regards to breaching tenancy agreements if this behaviour continues. A quantity of drugs was also recovered from the area. The drugs were believed to be sixteen rocks of crack and a tub of herbal Cannabis. A quantity of drugs was also recovered from the area.

that affects our residents quality of life and keep you safe.
Drugs and Anti Social Behaviour (ASB), Agar Grove and Barker Drive
We have increased patrols in the area concentrating on stairwells and points of access. There have been reduced levels of ASB calls across the Estate. Officers have identified locations where drugs are becoming more prominent; we have been identified offenders and taken action. This includes dispersals, arrests and drug seizures. We will continue to deliver a high level of quality policing throughout 2013, we are committed to reducing crime, fear of crime and engaging with the community to meet the needs of residents. We will continue to work closely with our partners and panel members throughout 2013.
Once a month we hold a street briefing within the ward. The location of these briefings change from month. This provides us with a chance to meet all the community and discuss any concerns they have, of even just say hello. We are keen to meet our community and ensure we are doing everything we can to keep them safe. Dates and times of future briefings can be found on our website or give us a call.

Building a Better Met
The challenge of crime never stops changing – just like London and the wider world. The MRS is changing too – to be smarter, faster and more accessible – finding new ways to give the public the service it deserves.
This is Total Policing – using all the MRS resources, legal powers, and the courage and dedication of officers and staff to fulfil the MRS commitment to Londoners – to be the best police force.
Making neighbourhoods safer by cutting crime and catching criminals is at the heart of keeping Londoners safe. There will be more officers on the streets and in neighbourhoods than ever before. Officers will come to people when they need them, and provide a high quality service however you contact the MRS – in person, on the phone, or online.
