Whilst conducting patrols during the fireworks period officers stopped and searched a male. He was found to be in possession of a quantity of cannabis and arrested. A subsequent search of his property led to the discovery of a substantial quantity of Class A Drugs. Two further arrests were made at the scene for possession of Class A Drugs with intent to supply.
In order to tackle further instances of anti-social behaviour within the ward officers have drawn up further Acceptable Behaviour Contracts between youths, their parents and Wandsworth Council. These have been found to be an effective way of tackling low levels of anti-social behaviour.
Below is a list of crime prevention pointers that may help you from becoming a victim.

Metropolitan Police Non -emergency Number
The Metropolitan Police have launched a new contact number that is for non-emergencies. Meaning calls that do not require an immediate Police response. This could be to report a crime, or maybe to seek advice on Police matters. The number to call is 0300 123 1212
For all other emergencies dial 999 . An emergency is when a crime is being committed at that time.
