Roehampton Ward Safer Neighbourhoods Team newsletter
Welcome to your Roehampton Ward Safer Neighbourhoods Team newsletter. This newsletter will introduce you to your ward-based policing team and provide you with ward news, meetings, crime prevention advice and how you can contact your local SNT officers. Your comments and feedback on this newsletter would be welcome
We are here specifically to address local, non-emergency issues that affect your quality of life. We are tasked with patrolling your ward, getting to know the people who live and work here and listening to the issues that are important to you. Please stop us and speak to us if you see us walking around or contact the Team on the number or e-mail address below.
Motor Vehicle Crime
We have had a slight increase in Motor vehicle Crime. Please follow these tips to stop yourself being a victim. Sat Nav equipment is becoming more popular with thieves.
Halloween and Fireworks Patrols
Over the Halloween and Fireworks period we increased our patrols for a 2-week period to insure the maximum amount of visibility. We confiscated roughly 35 fireworks and our team alone conducted 123 stop and accounts. Between the Putney and Wandsworth Teams we conducted 460 stop and accounts, 210 stop and searches and 14 arrests with positive results.
On Sunday 28th September 2008 PCSO Lisa BURKE along with the rest of the Team held a street meeting at Putney Vale. The residents were able to voice their concerns around anti-social behaviour and other issues affecting the local area.
Local residents turned out in force and raised several key issues that will be fed back to the ward panel for a decision on prioritisation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended. In return residents were provided with crime prevention advice and information from their Safer Neighbourhoods Team.
This is your chance to bring any concerns or matters that may affect you to our attention. It is also a good opportunity to meet our Safer Neighbourhoods Team and discuss community issues. All are welcome and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Our surgeries are a chance for you to come and talk to us in private about any concerns you have. It is open to anyone so please come along to our office at 37 Holybourne Avenue, Roehampton SW15.
From One Sergeant To Another
At the beginning of November the Team were appointed a new Sergeant, PS Mark McLeavery. His previous role was bases on a response team at Wandsworth Police Station where he dealt with 999 calls and crime issues on the borough including a role as custody sergeant. “I welcome the challenge of working with such a committed team and hope to develop and continue the good work already achieved in Roehampton. I’m looking forward to working closely with my new team to improve the safety and general environment of your local area and hope to meet you soon”.
Our previous Sergeant Peter Salmon has now transferred to Sutton borough where he has been promoted to Inspector. I’m sure you will join us in wishing Inspector Salmon all the best in his new role. He will be sadly missed.
