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.
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.
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.
