Local Police activity report

Snt_1The local police team has done a great job in the last four years in helping turn the neighbourhood around.  There are now six officers devoted to Caledonian Ward and the crime situation is improved, though anti social behaviour problems persist.  To contact the local police team phone 020 7 421 0271 and leave a message.  PC Mark Warwick has written a report for the Safer Neighbourhoods Residents Panel at the link below. It is a vivid first hand account of getting to grips with crime locally.  Here are some extracts:

To give you an example of a recent success. A local youth was seen to throw a large firework at two elderly members of the public by Police in uniform. The Police gave chase but due to the distance they were from the youth, he managed to enter a local estate and evade them. Approximately half hour later the same youth decided to throw another firework at a member of the public. Unfortunately for the youth, he threw the firework at a Police officer in plain clothes. He was arrested and prosecuted for the offence.

(PCSOs) John and Colin have set out on many occasions to “capture” the Juvenile motorcyclist who has terrorised the local residents along the canal path. Their long hard cold wait paid off on Sunday night (5th). At around 10pm after waiting in the freezing weather in the darkness near the canal, they caught the suspect and the stolen bike red handed. (PC) Carel was near by to assist them quickly and the person who comes from the


borough area was arrested and the property restored.
