OVERVIEW

The Safer Neighbourhood strategy was implemented approximately 10 years ago with the main aim of providing policing teams that would be close to and work with the community. The community in question is based on an electoral ward and the number of Police Officers within each team is based on the Wards population as determined from the 2001 Census.

Safer Neighbourhoods teams ( SNT's ) are not there to provide a 24-hour response; this is the role of the mobile response team officers ( responding to 999 calls, etc). Response team officers do pass on information to all of the Safer Neighbourhoods teams as appropriate. The SNT's deal with long term problem solving and "preventative" Policing.



IN AN EMERGENCY ALWAYS DIAL 999

MOPAC

The Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) is the strategic oversight body which sets the direction and budget for the Metropolitan Police Service on behalf of the Mayor. It ensures the Metropolitan Police Service is run efficiently and effectively and holds it, and other criminal justice services, to account on behalf of Londoners.

The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 established a Police and Crime Commissioner for each police force area across England and Wales. In London, the equivalent to Police and Crime Commissioner is the elected Mayor of London.

The Mayor is able to appoint a Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime to undertake the vast majority of duties assigned to him and he has done so. Stephen Greenhalgh has been the Deputy Mayor for Policing & Crime since 1st June 2012.

As well as setting the direction and budget for the MPS, MOPAC sets targets, scrutinises police performance and commissions selects services on behalf of the Mayor - including crime prevention schemes in boroughs via the London Crime Prevention Fund and, from 1st October 2014, victim support services across London.

All operational decision-making on day-to-day policing matters remains the responsibility of the Metropolitan Police Commissioner.

Your dedicated police team

We are your local Safer Neighbourhood police team and are tackiling the issues that matter to you by working with partner agencies to find lasting solutions. Please contact us with any concerns you have, or visit the above website for more information.

You Said

We listen to the concerns of the community and our priorities are set by local people who sit on a neighbourhood panel. You said the following priorities were important to you:
 
• Reduction in crime & anti-social behaviour in Enfield Retail Parks
• Anti-social behaviour by youths in and around the Lytchet Estate
• Road safety around primary schools

We Did
 
We have done the following to tackle these priorities:

Reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour in Enfield Retail Parks
 
The retail parks are patrolled daily and visits are made to the shops and businesses to address any issues. We have arranged meetings with the security guards in order that they can discuss trends and help identify any wanted offenders. We worked with the agents to get barriers in place at the Southbury leisure complex site. Due to robust proactive policing in this area, we have seen a large reduction in the numbers of vehicle 'Cruisers' who have attended the area to congregate in the car-parks.


Anti-social behaviour by youths in and around Lytchet Estate

We patrol this estate on a daily basis as do the Safer Neighbourhoods Estates Team. In addition to patrols we have conducted over twenty weapons sweeps on the estate in the last three months. This has shown a huge decline in the numbers of weapons being found. In addition the gangs of youths that were congregating on the estate have moved away.
 
The 'Home Zone' project that we have been assisting in since its inception continues. This has led to improved safety on the estate due to changes to car parking bays, removal of large bushes and a general opening up of the darker areas of the estate.
 
Road safety around primary schools

We conduct high visibility patrols outside schools at opening and closing times to encourage safer driving. In conjunction with Enfield Council's Road Safety Team, we regularly carry out road safety operations with school pupils. Supervised by our officers, pupils are given the opportunity to speak to motorists about road safety issues and dangers. These operations are both educational and effective and very impactive.

Safeguard your mobile phone

As many as 10,000 mobile phones are stolen every month. Two thirds of victims are aged between 13 and 16.
Remember to obtain your IMEI which is a 15 digit number unique to your phone. Then register your mobile phone at www.immobilise.com

- Avenues Estate : Anti-social behaviour by youths

We have done the following to tackle these priorities :

Enfield Retail Park

We have been focusing on theft from motor vehicle offences and there have been several operations on the retail park to help deter criminals and thieves. We have been utilising our resources and skills and included Enfield Boroughs Special Constabulary on a number of policing operations. Most vehicle crime is preventable. It can take as little as 10 seconds for a thief to steal something from your car. If at all possible, leave nothing on view.

- Never leave valuable items in your car.
- Do you really need all those things you keep in your glovebox.
- Wipe away the sat-nav mark on your windscreen and make sure you take it with you.
- Consider fitting tamper-proof screws to your number plates.
- When at home - nver leave your car keys where they can be seen from the front door.

Lytchet Estate

We are working with our partners to reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour and crime on the estate for all residents. Improvements are being made to the design of the Lytchet estate by Enfield Council. We currently have structured patrols running every day in the afternoon and evening with the help of the Safer Estates Team. Weapon sweeps have also been conducted on the estate to help deter knife crime.

Avenues Estate

We are currently working with Enfield Council and Enfield Homes to try and eradicate the recent anti-social behaviour issues. By working together we are aiming for long term solutions. We will keep you updated on our progress.

Untaxed cars removed from Southbury Ward

We have been working in partnership with Enfield Council in order to remove untaxed cars off of the streets of our ward. Over recent months a number of vehicles have been removed from our streets.

Safegaurd your mobile phone

As many as 10,000 mobile phones are stolen every month. Two thirds of the victims are aged between 13 and 16. many phones are also stolen from unattended cars.

Improving neighbourhood policing in your area

Earlier this year the Met carried out a review of the neighbourhood policing that involved consultation with members of the community and local partners across London.

Using the information gathered in the review, we will be making a small number of changes to the ways in which Safer Neighbourhood Teams operate.

Following the disorder in London over the Summer, we recognise that the neighbourhood policing has never been more important and we will continue to work to meet the needs of your community.

SNT assist in council eviction

In April 2011 Southbury SNT assisted Enfield Homes with a tenant eviction after the occupants caused numerous incidents of antisocial behaviour.

The occupants who lived in a communal block of flats in Old Road, Enfield were well known to the emergency services after calling them 130 times in one year. The occupants of this address were causing the neighbours distress by keeping them up all night with their loud noise and rowdy behaviour. The neighbours were delighted with the outcome and can now go about their daily business in peace.

Tamper proof number plate screws

On Saturday 23rd April Southbury SNT were outside Sainsbury's on Crown Road fitting tamper proof number plate screws on local resident's cars.

The theft of number plates is an ongoing issue with criminals stealing them to commit speed camera offences, using congestion zones without paying and committing various other crimes undetected.
Between 1000-1500 hours we replaced existing screws on over 100 number plates. This operation was a success and will hopefully see a reduction in these types of offences.

Dangerous Dog Seizure

In February Southbury SNT were contacted by a dog warden for Enfield Council who had been called to a location in Percival Road to deal with an aggressive dog who keeps escaping into a neighbour's garden. The dog warden believed it was a Pitbull Type dog which are illegal in the UK and requested our help in dealing with the issue.

On February 3rd 2011 Southbury SNT attended the address with a warrant in order to seize the dog which turned out to be an American Bulldog cross with a Dog de Bordeaux. The animal will not be destroyed but must be chipped, neutered, tattooed, registered, insured and muzzled in public in order for it to be kept as a pet.

The tenant has been visited by Enfield Homes and us and the tenant has been given a final warning
regarding the disturbance that he and his visitors are causing. It is hoped that this will
improve things without the need to consider eviction.

It's what we do !

An excellent piece of work in December 2010 by Southbury Ward Pcso Alex Nightingale led to the arrest of a male who was wanted for questioning for allegedly beating up his mother.
Southbury SNT were tasked to visit the home address of this male in an attempt to arrest him, however he was never in when Southbury SNT attended.

Alex had never met this male before and therefore he studied a photograph of the male suspect and committed the description to memory.
We made local enquiries at several neighbours and left calling cards with them in case he returned to the address. We were advised that the male was usually out of the house with a female and young baby visiting local shops.
A few days later Alex was on routine foot patrol on the Hertford Road when he saw a male (with a female) who matched the description going into the local post office. As Alex was confident that this was the wanted male he contacted one of the Southbury Ward Constables and the male was arrested.

PCSO'S detain two wanted criminals.

PCSO AUSTRIDGE and PCSO MIDDLETON attended a call on Wednesday 23rd June 2010 regarding a vagrant sleeping in a tent in Moorfield Road. When they arrived they recognised the man as a local shoplifter who had been arrested in the past. They conducted a name check on the male which revealed he had bail conditions but was currently in breach of them which meant he was arrestable. A unit was called to come and arrest the male and take him to court. Whilst the PCSO'S had the male detained a female well known to the police walked passed, checks on the radio were conducted which transpired that the female was wanted for theft and failing to appear at court. A unit was called and the female was arrested.

Later that day Southbury SNT assisted the Estates team in executing a drugs warrant at White Webbs after they received information about people cultivating cannabis in a Barn. Inside the barn were two articulated lorries one full with cannabis containing over 100 plants. So remember it could be happening anywhere. If you believe it is happening in your street contact us on 02087212763 and let us know.

Operation Reclaim

Southbury SNT have been keeping the roads of Southbury Ward safe by implementing Operation Reclaim. This is the power to seize a vehicle for varying reasons such as no insurance and driving not in accordance with a license.
We actively target these individuals as uninsured/unlicensed drivers affect us all. Whilst carrying out a school Road Safety Operation with George Spicer this vehicle was pulled over for the driver not wearing a seat belt but it transpired he did not have any insurance for the vehicle so it was seized under Operation Reclaim.

Suffolks Primary School Road Safety Operation

Southbury SNT worked in conjunction with Suffolk's Primary school and the road safety team from Enfield
council in order to promote and establish the rules and regulations of Road Safety. A group of children from the year 6 class of Suffolk's were chosen to take part in the operation. The children were asked to look out and record when they see people not wearing seatbelts, on mobile phones or parking on yellow zig zag lines outside their school etc. We are there to help stop and pull the cars over; at this point the children get to question and quiz the people into why they were not adhering to the Highway Code / road traffic act.

PERSONAL SAFETY ADVICE

We want to help you to help yourself avoid becoming a victim but we also need your help to tackle the problem by reporting to us any suspicious activity you witness and reporting any information you have about people you think are involved in robbery.
Here are a few crime prevention measures that will help you to keep safe when you are out and about.

• If travelling on trains and buses, find out the times so that you don't have to wait around too long.
• If waiting for buses and trains at night ensure that you wait at well-lit bus stops or brightly lit areas of the platform.
• If carrying a bag, wear it across your body or under your coat.
• Try not to carry all your money and important belongings in one bag.
• Be careful when using cash machines - make sure no-one is standing too close to you.
• When leaving a tube station don't check your mobile phone as you immediately exit the station.
• If you need to make a call in public, keep it brief and keep an eye on those around you.
• Don't walk while you are sending text messages.

DVD SEIZURES !

While it is not an offence to buy pirated DVDs, the production, distribution and sale of pirated DVDs is a criminal offence and those found guilty can be punished by a maximum 10 years imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine in the Crown Court, and a maximum of £5,000 and/or six months imprisonment in the magistrate's court. Southbury SNT has been cracking down on this matter and over several weeks have seized  well over 3000's DVDS.

SOUTHBURY WARD PRIORITIES

'We Asked, You Said, We did'

Current ward priorities, identified by recent surveys carried out by officers:

(1) Enfield Retail Parks
We were asked to deal with the 100's of vehicles that were attending the Retail and Leisure parks to have 'cruises'. These cruises were advertised on many social network sites and on one occasion over 800 cars attended. The sheer numbers involved caused a lot of noise and other drivers engaged in wheelspins etc. We were getting complaints from residents living a ¼ of a mile away. The areas are patrolled daily and the agent had had barriers and bollards put in place. The feedback from the shops in the retail park is very positive and they have not seen any gatherings of vehicles.

(2) Pembroke Avenue environs
We have been asked to improve the security of the homes in that area as a good number of surrounding premises have suffered from break-ins. We have started to provide the homes in that area with burglary crime prevention surveys and advice. In addition, we are carrying out daily patrols in this area in order to try and deter and prevent burglaries from occurring.

(3) The Ladysmith Neighbourhood Watch
We have been asked to improve the security of the homes in the area as they have suffered from a  disproportionate number of burglaries. We have worked with the Ladysmith Neighbourhood Watch committee to submit a funding request to the Home Office. The request has been successful and working together with the co-ordinators all 800 homes have been leafleted. The projects main aim is to specifically help the most vulnerable members of the community. We will be offering all residents free crime prevention surveys. The surveys will highlight any areas of concern and one all of the surveys have been done we will be able to supply and fit some security devices free of charge.

NO TOLERANCE ATTITUDE TOWARDS ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR !

Southbury SNT received a call from a local resident stating that she had been subject to abuse from localyouths causing anti social behaviour. By us working in partnership with Enfield council we have managed to quickly and efficiently solve the local resident's problem by fitting a Cctv camera to street lighting outside her house. This was fitted to Try and deter the anti social behaviour from happening and to try and catch who ever it was causing the problems. Crime prevention officers attended the address several times after being requested by the council, also visits were paid to the people who were suspected of causing the resident problems. The resident found this very reassuring and thanked both the police and Enfield council for their efforts.

SOUTHBURY WARD PRIORITIES

Current ward priorities, identified by recent surveys carried out by officers:

(1) Enfield Retail Parks - We are targeting a specific area in the retail park, Toys R Us, Homebase, Currys side of the park. Working with London borough of Enfield Council we are targeting anti social behaviour and car cruisers at this location. We are currently working with Transport for London regarding the speeding along the A10 within Southbury ward.

(2) Enfield Rangers Football Club - We are working with the club in an effort to introduce a Boxing initiative for local youths. The equipment has been purchased and we are waiting for the final go-ahead from the club as their lease is soon to be reviewed.

(3) Burglary Patrols - The Lords Neighbourhood watch has been subject to daily patrols and we are attempting to get some of the alleys gated. All houses have been offered crime prevention surveys and advice. This work will continue. For more information about safer neighbourhoods please visit:
www.met.police.uk/saferneighbourhoods


CLAMP DOWN ON CAR CRIME !

Throughout the month of September the Southbury safer neighbourhood's team received a number of calls from the public about cars driving at an excessive speed in their area and down their roads. As a result of these complaints a number of speeding operations have been taken place to slow drivers down. This was a great success as around 25 speeding tickets were given to drivers, the penalty for this offence being a £60 fine and 3 points on their license. A large number of drivers were warned about their speed and educated on this matter.
Also for many months Southbury SNT have been advising people on the matter of illegal window tinting on vehicles. The tints reduce vision and are a safety issue. At this moment in time the number of tints which have been peeled stands at 300.

FIREARM DISCOVERY

On Sunday 2nd August 2009 Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods were on routine patrol in Enfield Retail Park when officers approached a car. It was parked on its own at the far corner of the car park. When Officers reached the car they noticed a flick knife open on the dashboard of the vehicle. A search of the vehicle was conducted and the male advised the officers that there were weapons in his belongings. The search was completed and an item which resembled a loaded revolver was found, as well as bullets which fired pepper spray. The male was arrested and is in custody pending a trial in October.
Experts tested the weapon and it transpired that it was a firearm capable of discharging a harmful substance.

BURGLAR ARRESTED

On Thursday 27th August 2009 members of Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods were on patrol in an unmarked vehicle, when they spotted a male breaching his curfew. When officers approached the male he ran away and could not be located. They went round to his house to see if he had returned there, however there was no reply to repeated knocking. Whilst officers were doing this a security guard stopped the Officers and explained that the male who they sought had recently burgled his place of work. A statement was taken from this security guard and passed on and the male was arrested later on that night. He is currently on bail pending a trial.

CAR CRUISER UPDATE

The work on the retail parks continues to be successful, with very few vehicles attending the retail parks to cause damage and asb. A dispersal zone has been authorised for this area and it allows Police and PCSO to move on groups that are intent on causing asb. The agents are supplying two security guards for the site and things are much improved.

OFFENSIVE WEAPON ARREST

A call was received via the 999 system from Cineworld Cinema, regarding a youth who had threatened to stab staff there. As we were around the corner we responded and on arrival it transpired that the male just ran away from the scene. He was chased and caught a short distance away. He was arrested for carrying an offensive weapon and received an official reprimand.

First Alley Gating Scheme a Success

Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods have worked in partnership with Enfield Council and the Lords Neighbourhood Watch to install new alley gates in their vulnerable areas.

One of the Neighbourhood watch co-ordinators contacted Police to see what could be done with regards to the anti social behaviour, drug taking and the general security of houses that backed onto the alleyway. The Neighbourhood watch were informed by us that there is currently an alley-gating scheme running in the London Borough of Enfield.

If the permission of all residents whose homes back onto the alleyway was obtained, the scheme would go ahead and the council would fund this scheme free of charge to the residents.

Burglars Caught Red Handed

In the policing world there is simply no substitute for being out there patrolling the ward. Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods were on late night patrols around Brick Lane. We saw two males putting something into the back of their vehicle, when approached by a PCSO they sped off towards Oldbury Road. We pursued them and both occupants decamped from the vehicle and ran off. A lengthy foot chase followed and the two males were found hiding in a garaged area. Their vehicle was found to contain a stolen boiler, flue and tools used to gain entry to the premises from which they stole these items. There was a pressing need to find out the exact location where the boiler had come from as a gas leak could pose a huge threat to the public.

The emergency gas board was called to the vacant premises that the boiler was stolen from, as gas was escaping from the pipes where the stolen boiler used to be.

The area was secured. Both males were arrested and charged with burglary and have since been sentenced to 15 months imprisonment each.

Counterfeit Clothing Goods Seized in Raid

Officers from Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods Team demonstrated their excellent working partnerships with the London Borough of Enfield Trading Standards Team when executing a warrant in the Carterhatch Lane area recently.
Information was received and a warrant was obtained to search a residential premises. Officers from both teams entered the privately owned accomodation and seized a vast quantity of counterfeit clothing goods. The occupant was arrested for possession of counterfeit goods and will be charged in due course.

Stolen Property Returned... Found in Garden

A Nintendo Console, a range of games and accessories were found in a carrier bag in a front garden at one of our Neighbourhood Watch areas. The residents who found the items contacted Southbury team who visited and collected the items. Southbury team believed they were stolen from the surrounding area. We checked our database to see if anyone had registered the items, this provided no leads. We advised the Neighbourhood Watch who told the community. We then received a call from the owner of the property. Unfortunately there was no forensic evidence on the items but the resident was very happy and relived to have their property back safely.

Burglary - Help us defeat it

We would like to remind people to make sure their homes are secure. Burglars are usually opportunists and will take any lucky chance that they are confronted with - leaving windows and doors open, increases their opportunities. Homeowners are reminded to double-check the security of your home, ensuring that :

- When going out, all windows and external doors are locked, using the keys,
- When going to bed, you secure unattended windows and you key-lock front and back doors, removing your keys from view.
- Items of value, including presents, are not left on display.
- Timer switches are fitted and set to make your home look occupied even when it isn't.
- Remember: remove the opportunity, prevent the burglary

Exhaust Noise Meter

After numerous complaints from residents Southbury Ward Safer Neighbourhoods Team have been targeting vehicles that have had 'after market' exhausts fitted. We have noticed an increase in such vehicles which are invariably very noisy. We have an approved db meter that can measures the noise and the drivers who alter their exhaust system from the original, face a maximum £1000 fine if the noise exceeds the certificated limit. One vehicle tested had a maximum certificated db of limit of 82db and when tested the lowest reading was 86db and the highest was 92db. It might therefore appear that this vehicle was only slightly exceeding the certificated db limit. This is not the case as noise readings are logarithmic and each additional 3db doubles the noise.

Anti Social Neighbours Finally Evicted

Southbury Ward SNT worked in partnership with Enfield council's anti social behaviour team after neighbours suffered a year of abuse and anti-social behaviour from a family in Clive Road. They were evicted from their three-bedroom house due to the complaints. Cllr Ertan Hurer, cabinet member for community safety and the voluntary Sector said "This family caused the most appalling problems for all local residents, they made life miserable for anyone who had the misfortune to live near them."

Smoking Is Bad For Your Wealth

Officers from Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods team were patrolling Enfield Retail Park on foot when the saw a suspicious transaction between two men, one in a car and one in a Lorry. Officers questioned the men and found large quantities of black sacks in the boot of the vehicle and stashed in the lorry containing cigarettes. The officers called customs and excise who drove to the scene. After confirming there was no duty paid on the imported cigarettes they seized the cigarettes and the vehicle because the accused men could not pay the duty of £1500.

During June and July officers from Southbury Safer Neighbourhoods Team joined forces with Bush Hill Park Primary and George Spicer Primary Schools to deliver tough lessons back to motorists.  The aim of the campaign was to hit home the reality of speeding. The children would speak to the drivers and read them information - telling the motorists what consequences of their actions if they were to hit them. The children would also speak to the drivers about the use of seatbelts and using mobile phones whilst driving.
