Police Safer Neighbourhood Ward Panel Meeting.

A panel made up of Wallington South residents, ward councillors and the Safer Neighbourhood Team meets up every three months to discuss local policing issues and set priorities for the next three months. The panel is chaired by David Duncan, a local resident. It was agreed that two of the three priorities for the last three months should be carried forward, whilst the third priority to deter car theft and burglary was agreed to have been effective and was replaced by increasing vigilance around drug-related activities in the Stafford Road area, especially any which may be linked to the new shop ‘Your High’.


The priorities for June, July & August were therefore as follows:


1          Target ASB, especially by youths, in the area around Beddington Gardens and Shotfield, to include Wallington Library and the Methodist Church


2          Target those carrying out graffiti, ward-wide, in addition to the known hotspots.


3          Watch out for drugs and drug-related activity in the Stafford Road area.


Sgt. Peter LeShirley advised us of some community engagement events that have been organised for residents in the local area. The first, open to all residents of Wallington North, Wallington South, Beddington North & Beddington South, will be held on Tuesday 1st July between 5 and 8pm at Wallington Hall. Leaflets are being circulated. There will also be an event on 15th July specifically for residents of Carew Road and Ross Road. The team plan to hold a number of other area specific meetings in the near future.


The Panel are looking to increase its membership so any local residents interested in joining the panel should contact either myself or the local SNT.
