Lambeth Police Sergeant Graham Norman working in partnership with an organisation called Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) will be hosting a ‘ROC Conversations’ evening on Wednesday 25 May at Holy Trinity Church, Clapham Northside at 7.30pm to discuss the needs and hopes for the community of Lambeth. The evening, held in partnership with the local churches, Lambeth Borough Police and the British Transport Police (BTP), will draw together local residents, community organisations, councillors, and statutory agencies to encourage positive discussion and the expression of ideas that may be built upon with the focus on action and forward movement in partnership. Redeeming Our Communities is a national charity set up in 2004 that aims to be a catalyst for community transformation by promoting partnerships, that creates more opportunities to reduce crime and improve community cohesion. Since 2004 the charity has been building links between churches and the public sector for the good of the community. While there is progress underway for the roll out of ROC in Greater London, the important partnerships links established between churches, the police service and public sector across the Capital is strengthening with the support of the City of London and BTP at senior levels. The first phase launch in the six lead London boroughs of Lambeth, Croydon, Kensington & Chelsea, Islington, Newham and Southwark, together with the City of London is well under way. Debra Green, Director and founder of Redeeming Our Communities says –“the church is a huge untapped resource with many thousands of members who all share a commitment to serve people and communities and already deliver a vast range of community projects from youth work to the care of vulnerable people. This is a great time to be forging partnerships so that people of goodwill can work together towards a safer, kinder community. We have found working with Police forces across the UK has proved to be a partnership which significantly benefits people and communities.” Rt Revd Paul Williams, Bishop of Kensington, agrees that the partnership has been fruitful, he says – “ROC has a vital resource to offer our churches: expertise in forming multi-agency partnerships that can deliver real change and safer communities. With Christians working alongside the police and other community groups to address some of our urban problems, ROC projects can be truly transformational!” PS Graham Norman the deputy faiths lead for Lambeth Borough Police comments; “The timing for the ROC launch in Lambeth couldn’t be better. At a time when the police and local services are facing unprecedented cuts, the Church steps up and asks “what can we do to help?” with no other agenda other than being true to it’s belief in helping the needy and loving their neighbour (their community). The Church already provides essential services to the community, but ROC takes this a step further by coordinating those services and building on them in partnership with statutory agencies.” All churches in mid- Lambeth (i.e. Clapham, Brixton and Stockwell) are encouraged to attend. Further meetings for churches in North Lambeth and South Lambeth will be held in July and September. For further information contact Sergeant Graham Norman of Lambeth Borough Met Police on 07766134379 who is organising the event.

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has launched a review into the different ways in which the public can contact police and access our services. These range from telephone, online and face-to-face methods, including via police stations and appointments. As part of the review, the MPS has launched an online survey to find out which of the many channels the public use to contact us and after learning about the variety of ways that exist, the survey poses the question would members of the public choose a different way of accessing police services in future. The MPS will use the results of the survey, which runs until Friday 27 May, to help develop a strategy to maintain and enhance public access to policing services. To take part please complete the survey at: www.met.police.uk by 27 May. Once on the website, click on the link titled "Give us your feedback" and then "online survey". At the end of the survey you will not be asked for your name or address. You will only be asked which borough you live or work in. Anyone wishing to make any further comments and suggestions regarding access to police services in MPS or Lambeth are welcome to e-mail them directly to AskLambethBoroughCommander@met.police.uk
In commitment to the prevention of crime in the borough, Lambeth Met Police Officers spent Wednesday and Thursday (20 and 21 April) marking the property of residents in Ambleside Avenue, Streatham SW16, which has recently suffered from a spate of burglaries. When police recover property taken through means of a burglary, the markings can help them to return the property to the rightful owner. Officers on foot patrol from the Streatham South Safer Neighbourhoods Team along with officers from Streatham’s Local Policing Team (LPT) knocked on every address along the Avenue during the evening hours speaking with the occupants about preventing their homes from becoming a target of burglary. In addition to the crime prevention advice, Lambeth officers then encouraged residents to mark their property of high value with a DNA solution, which if stolen police can trace using UV lights. This results in owners having their property returned while achieving better success rates in convictions against burglars. The forensic marking apparatus is from a company called SelectaDNA. Once the houses had their property marked, signs were erected in the street to signify these actions to act as a deterrent to potential burglars. Inspector Nick Fallowfield of the Streatham Cluster for Lambeth Borough Police comments; “By working together with the residents of Lambeth we will make our borough stronger and safer against crime. Steps such as property marking will make your home more secure against possible break ins while assisting us to detect crime and bring those offenders to justice. We welcome all residents to contact their local SNT to gain valuable crime prevention advice.” This burglary prevention initiative occurs the same week that prolific Streatham burglar Eddie Stephens aged 41 years was sentenced to three years and six months imprisonment after being convicted of four burglaries at Inner London Crown Court on Tuesday 19 April. For further crime prevention advice on how to secure your home and possessions against burglary, contact your local Safer Neighbourhoods Team through visiting the website www.met.police.uk/teams/lambeth/index

Vehicle theft scam

February 02, 2011 12:55
 
Theft of Range Rover in Streatham Vale, SW16 Lambeth Borough Police are investigating the theft of a Range Rover which took place in Streatham Vale, SW16. On Thursday 27 January, a black Range Rover Vogue was driving south on Streatham Vale, SW16 when a man standing on the pavement near the junction with Glenister Park Road pointed at the nearside of the vehicle. The driver stopped his car and got out to check the front wheels, thinking he might have a puncture. He left his key in the ignition. The man standing on the pavement beckoned the driver round to the nearside. As the driver checked the nearside of his vehicle, he saw a second man get into his car and drive off down Streatham Vale towards Mitcham. The first man ran off down Glenister Park Road. Police were called and the driver telephoned to activate a tracking device fitted to his vehicle. The vehicle was later found locked and parked about a mile from the scene of the theft. The suspects are described as white men, both about 25 - 30 years of age. They were casually dressed in blue jeans and dark blue jackets. The first suspect spoke in broken English. This is one of a number of similar offences in the area recently, where mainly, but not exclusively, high value new cars have been targeted. There have also been reports of vans being targeted. Police are advising motorists to exercise caution if they are alerted to a problem with their vehicle in similar circumstances, and always to remove keys from the vehicle when getting out. Particular care should be taken not to get out of the vehicle and leave the engine running in vehicles which have a ‘keyless ignition’. DCI Nick Sedgemore said, ‘Beware of getting out of your vehicle without taking your keys.' Anyone with any information regarding this case should contact Lambeth Borough Police Vehicle Crime Unit on 020 8649 2436 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

MPS Neighbourhood Policing Review

December 31, 2010 14:28
 
Safer Neighbourhoods Teams (SNTs) across London are consulting with local businesses and members of the community as part of the Met’s review of neighbourhood policing. The purpose of the review is to find better ways of using current neighbourhood policing resources to meet the needs of the local community. It will also ensure that local police teams continue to deliver an effective and relevant service in the right place at the right times. SNTs will be talking to businesses and community members throughout December and January about neighbourhood policing and will gather their thoughts and feedback in a questionnaire. Members of the community are also being encouraged to complete the questionnaire themselves online. Borough commanders and SN leads have also been consulting with staff and partners such as local authority chief executives and ward panel members. AC McPherson has also held a series of meetings with local authority chief executives to discuss the review. The feedback from this consultation will help inform any possible future changes to how neighbourhood policing is delivered. No changes will be made without talking to local partners and community members. Assistant Commissioner McPherson, Metropolitan Police, said: “Safer Neighbourhoods Teams have made a significant difference to safety and confidence across London. We remain committed to delivering effective neighbourhood policing that focuses on the safety of local people and ensures a visible local policing presence in all our communities. We are committed to maintaining named officers in every neighbourhood in London who are responsible for identifying and tackling local crime and anti-social behaviour.” You can find the questionnaire at http://www.keysurvey.co.uk/survey/339166/19e4/. It will be available until the 21 January 2011.

Letter Box Burglary

November 02, 2010 09:24
 
In Lambeth there has been an increase in letter box burglary. The perpetrator puts their hand/tools through the letter box and opens the door using the handle from the inside. This provides easy quiet access to the premises. To combat this ensure that you double lock your door. This means a key will be required to open the door, instead of it just opening by using the handle inside. Keep keys in a place all members of the family are aware of to open the doors in case of an emergency, but out of sight of a burglar. If want to know more about Neighbourhood Watch or to set one up contact Karen Hunn Tel 020 7926 2716 or Email Khunn@lambeth.gov.uk. Alternatively go to www.met.police.uk/saferneighbourhoods to find your local Safer Neighbourhood Team who will also be able to help.
