Survey on women's safety in the Borough

Please take time to complete this survey about women’s safety in the borough. Although aimed specifically at women and girls in the borough, they welcome and encourage feedback from anyone who has experienced gender-based violence, abuse or harassment in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, including men and non-binary people. 

Car crime in the Triangle

There has been a marked increase in car crime over the past few weeks. There was a uniformed patrol today of the triangle and the police commented on the visibility of belongings including handbags in cars. 

Please remember to remove everything from cars. Even a suction mark on a windscreen where a satnav has been is enough for somebody to smash a window. 

Do not leave anything, e.g. wires, glasses cases etc visible at all and take all belongings inside. Please warn all visitors. We are trying to get signs put on the metered areas. Please also warn builders as there has been tools taken from a van in Egerton on Tuesday 11 whilst they were working in the house.

If you or a visitor does suffer a smashed window, please do report this online or on 101 as soon as possible.

Please also report any suspicious individuals you see. 

If you have any footage from ring doorbells that you think is relevant please send through to the Safer Neighbourhood Team.

The Greenwich West Safer Neighbourhoods Panel met in virtually on Thursday 6th January. Below is a summary of that meeting: 

Burglaries of bikes

We hope to have a bike marking session available to residents soon. 

Town centre 

Aggressive violent beggars have left town centre.

Distraction thefts - beware of withdrawing cash outside in town centre. Devices have also been found in exterior ATMs. Lloyds TSB to close in March.

Graffiti in town centre- acid material used which has damaged bus stops. Police have an idea of who is behind it.

Within triangle

Cowan house parcel theft continued over Christmas. Parcels contributed to be left in communal hallway.

Car crime- statistics have gone down but local residents have reported a spate of smashed windows which may not have been reported. Please ensure you report any damage to vehicles to police, and remind visitors to remove valuables from car and belongings out of sight. We are going to try to get signage for the metered areas to warn visitors or car crime.

Police will look into local incidents and reporting system.
