Wallington South Safer Neighbourhoods Team Ward Panel Meeting

At this meeting we had a report from the Schools Liaison Officer who updated us on her work with the local schools and answered our questions.

I fed back the latest news on the Wallington Station Access Scheme and proposals to address the Woodcote Road bus stop issues. Cllr Bailey reported back on some planning related issues.

We discussed whether the priorities for the previous three months had been met and agreed the following targets for the next three months:

  • Targeting Anti-social behaviour in the high street, Beddington Gardens and Shotfield area.
  • Targeting vehicle crimes.
  • Increase vigilance around prime burglary target areas.

There was an interesting discussion about the classification of crimes which could result in misleading figures. For example each call out in respect of groups of young people was classified as anti-social behaviour incidents regardless of whether the group were found to be causing a nuisance or committing a crime.

The Sgt LeShirley also advised us that the high visibility ‘Operation Santa’ would again take place in Wallington town centre over the Christmas period to deter incidences of pick pocketing and shoplifting.
