Heston Safer Neighbourhoods Team will be pounding the pavements on Wednesday 24 February as part of a special community action day designed to reduce crime, inform residents and make Heston safer.
As well as street patrols across the ward, officers will join forces with the council’s enforcement team to jointly investigate reoccurring issues raised by residents.
Police cadets will be on hand to help spread the word about crime prevention and council staff will investigate anti-social behaviour.
Residents are encouraged to pop in for tea or coffee and a chat with police officers, the council’s estates and enforcement officers, community engagement staff, caretaking service and community safety staff between 2pm-3pm at Convent Way Community Centre, block 143-164 Convent Way.
Guests can get advice from police and council staff as well as report issues of concern. The police will also be handing out property marking packs and explaining how to use the neighbourhood link, the Met’s community messaging system.
Acting Inspector Dominic Hall said: “The day will prove to be a fantastic opportunity to get out into the community and raise our residents’ confidence in what we do. I look forward to meeting some of them on the day.”
Councillor Richard Foote, cabinet member for community protection, said: “This joint action day is a great opportunity for residents to speak directly to the police and the council about matters that affect their quality of life, as well as find out more about the good work that has already been undertaken in the area.”
