Safer Neighbourhoods News and Police Drop-Ins

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to you all in 2018.
The latest figures from our January Safer Neighbourhoods Police Meeting show eight residential burglaries in the Triangle and seven thefts involving the taking of and from a motor vehicle for the October 2017 to January 2018 period.

The domestic burglary figures include one in Lindsell Street where a laptop was stolen and one in Guildford Grove where access was gained through downstairs sash windows. The other streets affected were Blackheath Road, Egerton Drive and Greenwich High  Road. The good news is the Police arrested a burglar in connection with Guildford Grove in early January.

If anybody does happen to receive a "charity collector", and they are dubious as to their real motives, please call 999 straight away.

With the closure of Greenwich Police station in Burney Street last year, the Safer Neighbourhoods team now operate in the Parks Office, Greenwich Park by the Blackheath gate entrance. The Parks office is not a public station and the nearest desk staffed station to us is Lewisham.
The police are now holding some local drop-ins where you can just turn up and raise any issues on crime at St Alfege Church Hall, Roan Street, London SE10 9JT on the following dates:  

Wed 17/01 1800  Sat 27/01 1600  Thurs 1/2 2100   Fri 9/2  1300  Thurs 15/2  1700   sat  24/2 1300

St Alfege Church Hall is situated behind St Alfege Church on Greenwich Church Street, next to Greggs Bakers. Drop-ins will run for approximately one hour.
