Door functionality

After writing to councillors, MP and THH, to alert them to design features of the new doors, THH have now confirmed that they will speak with AD about options. Our local Member of Parliament Rushanara Ali has also confirmed she is supporting this issue.

“Police have asked anyone who has had a bike stolen in Hackney or Tower Hamlets in the past 6 months…to email CE-MiST@met.police.uk with as much information about the bike as possible. (Make, model, colour and/or serial number, and a picture if available.)”

Have your say on policing priorities

As Neighbourhood Watch coordinator I do not get to know about all problems, so cannot argue on your behalf unless you inform me. However you have the opportunity to voice your preferences and ask for special attention to Parkview by using this online Met Police voting portal. The more people vote, the more resources may be allocated to our area.

As the statistics for December 2019 show, the recorded crime rate for our Bethnal Green area is well above average.

The average crime rate  of

  • London 8
  • Tower Hamlets 9
  • Bethnal Green 11

is very concerning.

There are

  • 21 residential burglaries
  • 19 cases of theft
  • 17 cases of harrassment

Whilst the Safer Neighbourhood Panel, held in conjunction with our local Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team decides on a quarterly basis, which areas of Bethnal Green they dedicate their manpower to, it is essential for residents to voice their preferences.

Not every area has people available to attend the SNT Panel meetings but we have the option to voice our concerns.

Whilst the statistics do not show that the majority of crimes are committed in and around Parkview, it is concerning that they take place in our relatively small area of Bethnal Green.

Please act quickly as the next quarterly meeting will be held next week.
