Addiscombe Safer Neighbourhood Team joined forces with CHASE residents association and held a community afternoon at the Tram Stop Café, it was a very successful day and we managed to meet a lot of the lovely local residents and gave out leaflets and security advice.

Addiscombe Safer Neighbourhood Team have now linked up with Woodside Safer Neighbourhood Team. This means that Sergeant Purnell will oversee both teams and we have now got the resources to use the officers from the Woodside team in assisting us with our problems and vice versa.

New Metropolitan Police webpage
This is an easier way for members of the public to self-report crimes, find their local safer neighbourhood teams and also to see the crime trends on your wards. But also it now gives you the opportunity to tell us what is going on. It is a lot more user friendly and easier to work your way around and find out all the security advice, who is in your local policing team and local events etc.
