Safer Neighbourhood Team - Meeting Report and Survey

The Safe Neighbourhood Team (SNT) Ward Panel meeting was held on Wednesday 15 December 2010. This is a report of that meeting.

Neighbourhood Policing - a Survey of Residents' Views

At the meeting Sgt Redmond went through a survey with the purpose of consulting residents on the structure of Safer Neighbourhood Teams, their locations and what they do.

Financial cuts are imminent and will take effect in April 2011. Sgt Redmond indicated that he will argue that the Mile End East team stays as it is based on the work load being realistic to the requirements of the area, so no more and no less members in the team.

Residents present at the meeting agreed with this as well as with the suggestion that merging teams would decrease service as the team members would have to come from further away on a call.

The police are interested in more residents’ views. You can take the survey on-line here.  It will be available until the 21st January 2011.
  • The questions will gather your thoughts about neighbourhood policing in your area 
  • Answers will play a valuable part in shaping plans for the future of neighbourhood policing in London. 
If you want more information about the survey

Get in touch with MERA if you are interested in more background information before you do the survey – or if you prefer a hard copy instead (that way you can add your own comments). Alternatively get in touch with the SNT directly with your comments (details below).
    Burglaries / crime prevention

    There has been a number of burglaries from houses around the Hamlets Way/Mossford Street area. These have mainly been due to poor security of the homes.

    The SNT have recently held crime prevention stalls and been on the buses to help promote overall safety.  They have also asked MERA to help get the message out about improving security.

    It's important for all local residents to focus on the importance of securing your homes
    The Ennerdale House PSP (publicly set priority)

    The Ennerdale House PSP (publicly set priority) was extended.
    • The block is still busy with anti-social behaviour
    • SNT work will now focus on solving the problem of why the young people congregate in the stairwells and trying to get them involved in more useful things like football programmes. 
    • Patrols will also be increased when the SNT is on duty, this includes evenings.
    We meant to ask the team for a photograph – but we forgot, maybe next meeting…
