Helping with car vandals

It has been brought to our attention that cars in the Parkview Estate had been broken into. When such vandalism happens it is often at night or few people actually evidence the crime.

It is possible within the current legislation that people with camera door bells, car video can share evidence of a crime with police. If people do not want to share to police directly, they can do so anonymously via our anonymous crime reporting facility. You do not have to give a name, number or email address. In fact we do not even monitor your IP address. So you are completely anonymously supporting your neighbours.

You can upload camera footage or pictures to us here.

It would be even better if everybody on Parkview Estate, signed up formally for Neighbourhood Watch, as we can notify each other quickly about things.

As Neighbourhood Watch member it is legal to share evidence with the main coordinator whilst it is illegal to share pics or footage with other civilians.

Of course you must always report any crime, car thefts, any other thefts directly to police for your insurance. You must obtain your own crime number.

However, anonymous evidence can be provided by anybody who has it.

To report a crime, which is still in progress always call 999

Become aWatch members, display stickers https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/

To report a crime, which took place already and offenders are no longer on site you can ring 101 or even can report to police directly via their Twitter account, which also allows you to upload pictures. Once you are on the Police Twitter account, press the envelope and you will be able to make a crime report, which will result in a crime number given to you after a short wait.

It is also helpful to have Neighbourhood Watch window stickers in the dwellings on the estate, it is statistically proven that criminals are 13% less likely to commit a crime if window stickers are visible.

urgent appeal

It has come to our attention that a resident around the Glasshouse area (exact details cannot be published at this time) is regularly

  • harassing community volunteers
  • neighbours
  • committing hate crime
  • is homophobic

We urge all affected to contact us immediately.

It has a very depressing effect on the community is one individual can intimidate neighbours and volunteers.

Please do contact us with any details of problems suffered through this.

If you have pictorial evidence you can submit anonymously through this link. Please do not share anything on social media at this time. Contact us via our contact page to discuss this with us directly.

In case of being insulted or attacked, please call 999. Keep records of all incidences of verbal or other insults directed at you.

Do not suffer in silence, not saying anything will not improve the situation. This matter has been reported to police and to Tower Hamlets Homes.

Any person who has suffered any type of racial assault can be referred to the Council’s Hate crime unit for counselling with consent. Please contact us.

SNT Ward Panel

the next quarterly ward panel meeting will take place on

17. August 2021, from 6-7pm at the Glasshouse. If you have any pressing issues to contribute, please contact us and we will put this forward for you.

Due to Coronavirus restrictions on the venue, this is not an open public walk-in meeting and people wishing to attend need to be invited by the organiser, our local Safer Neighbourhoods Team.

This is Bethnal Green Ward, a profile of the ward has been published on the Tower Hamlets Council website.

We always welcome applications to join the local Ward Panel. Please let us know if you wish to participate.

The ward panel sets policing priorities in the ward of Bethnal Green.

We currently have 8 active Neighbourhood Watch groups in this area. We strongly encourage the creation of even more watch schemes by registering with Ourwatch. Or why not join Parkview Neighbourhood Watch here.

We also have a Facebook based watch group, which is closed and by application only. You can also register for this Facebook group via Ourwatch and then ask to join on Facebook. This is ideal for people who usually work when meetings take place but want to stay in touch.

We also still have the Neighbourhood Watch drop in meeting on 21. August 5-6 and a bigger public meeting on 31. August 2021, which will be attended by the Crime Prevention Officer for Tower Hamlets. Please also see the Neighbourhood Watch event calendar for all events in Tower Hamlets

broken walls

broken wall stones have been left laying around in front of Cleland and Goodrich House and along Sewardstone Road.

I have taken pictures and contact councillors, THH, SNT and Parkview RA about this.

No lose stones should be left lying around, this is a H&S risk and the bricks can be used for criminal acts.

If anybody has any further comments about this problem or has had incidents adversely affecting them please contact Parkview Neighbourhood Watch using the contact form on this site.

I shall submit a formal complaint to THH if this has not been rectified by Tuesday 29. June
