Wallington South Safer Neighbourhood Team Ward Panel Meeting

I arrived late to this meeting as I had a personal engagement earlier the same evening. I was still able to provide our usual update from the councillors on issues in the area.

Sergeant Peter LeShirley reported back on progress on the previous three month’s priorities and promised good news shortly on the priority to address drugs and related crime in the Shirley Road area. This appeared in the Local Guardian recently as the team had located a cannabis plant factory in a residence in the road and had made the appropriate arrests. This success was the result of the Safer Neighbourhood Team acting on local information so well done to the Wallington South Team.

The priorities for the next three months were set as follows:

  • Address the use of drugs and associated crime in and around the Shirley Road area (to enable completion of the operation) 
  • Target ASB, especially by youths, in and around the ‘High Street’ – to the west: the area formed by Woodcote Road, Beddington Gardens, Shotfield and Stanley Park Road – to the east the rectangle formed by Ross Road, Clyde Road, Carew Road and Demesne Road
  • Target theft of, theft from, and damage to motor vehicles within the ‘eastern rectangle’ of roads as above, viz. Ross, Clyde, Carew and Demesne Roads

 Some of the residents attending the meeting raised some casework with me which I have followed up.

You can come and meet the Team yourself at the Police drop in Surgeries. Next dates are:

  • 22/10/2009 – 16:00 – 22:00 – Mobile police station – Old Town Hall Woodcote Road
  • 10/11/2009 – 08:00 – 11:00 – Drop-in surgery – Wallington Halls
  • 23/11/2009 – 12:00 – 15:00 – Street briefing – Ross Rd J/W Demesne RD
