Every ward in the Borough will be covered by a police Safer Neighbourhood team from April 1 2006. Each team will be dedicated to policing its own local area. By the end of this year, all of the teams will be comprised of at least one police sergeant, two police constables and three police community support officers.
They will be based in the community – two of the teams have already established a base at the Co-Op in Westhorne Avenue. Being local means that they will get to know local people – and local troublemakers. Where they have been operating for some time, they have already helped bring crime levels down.
