Police gearing up to stamp out crime!

Local Police ramped up the drive to eradicate violent crime, especially crimes involving guns and knives.

Today at Ilford Station a knife arch was strategically located by the main entrance of the station.  The arch was there to deter the carrying of offensive weapons, after a spate of four stabbings in the local area.

Police held an information stall in Ilford town centre yesterday, from 12:00 - 17:00, at which they distributed  panic alarms, burglar alarms and window motion sensors to tackle a recent surge in violent crime, burglary and theft; whilst also providing information on how to keep you home and person safe.

Visible police patrols have increased and Sergeant Sutton of Clementswood Police has also agreed to hold a crime meeting at Clementswood and Mayfield Community Centre in the new year.    We will inform you of dates once they have been confirmed.

Hate crime has increased in our wards and we will be inviting faith groups to join us at the meeting, so that in solidarity as a community, we can provide necessary assistance and intelligence to local police, enabling them to set more appropriate local policing priorities.
