Ward Panel Virtual Surveys


We will soon be launching a new way of collecting information regarding the issues that affect you or are of interest to you as someone living on this ward. 


The information will be obtained in the form of a short online survey which we will send out every 3 months.  We would like to know if you would be interested in receiving this survey.  If you are, we will need your first name, last name and email address. We will then send an e-mail every three months informing you the next survey is available and a link to the actual survey. 


The results from the survey will be used at Ward Panel Meetings to enable better decisions to be made on where to target Police resources to tackle the issues raised.  The information will also provide a better understanding of local issues for the West Barnes Safer Neighbourhood Team.  The information will enable us to implement a more targeted approach to our patrols. 


For example, we may identify a need to change our shifts if there is an issue that is occurring at certain times, for example; people congregating in an area at night and causing a nuisance.  We may also use the information to arrange operations, for example; if there is an issue with drivers speeding in a particular area then we can arrange for assistance from the Traffic Team to carry out speed checking in the area and arrange for an Automatic Number Plate Reader to take part as well.  There are many ways that we can adapt our current approach.  We would very much like to hear from you if there is an issue that concerns you.  As above, please send your details to us. 



The West Barnes Safer Neighbourhoods Team continues to work hard in your area. If you need our assistance please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail at WestBarnes.SNT@met.police.uk or by phone on 0208 721 2454.


Thank you,
