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.
- 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.
