Find your Safer Neighbourhoods team
Safer Neighbourhoods provides:
- teams of officers are dedicated to every London neighbourhood;
- a more accessible, more visible, more accountable police service;
- local community opinion will be used to inform Policing priorities and promises, allowing the police to provide long-term, local solutions to local problems while maintaining a focus on reducing priority crime.
Safer Neighbourhoods teams are dedicated to your community and are additional to other policing teams and units in London. If you have concerns about day-to-day crime and disorder issues, or if you would like to get involved, please contact your local team.
- Barking and Dagenham
- Tower Hamlets
- Waltham Forest
The officers on your Safer Neighbourhoods team spend most of their time out on patrol in your neighbourhood, meeting the community and identifying and dealing with those crimes and issues you have told us cause you most concern. We have increased the hours of coverage and the number of Police officers working within your Neighbourhood to focus on local promises and priorities.
Your Safer Neighbourhoods team wants to hear from you. If your call is not answered, please do leave a message on the answerphone or send them an email. A member of the team will get back to you.
Safer Neighbourhoods teams are not there to provide a 24-hour response, this is the role of response team officers. Response team officers do pass on information to Safer Neighbourhoods teams as appropriate.
So please note, these contact details should not be used for any communication that might require an emergency response. In an emergency you should dial 999, for all other calls to the Metropolitan Police Service please call 101 our non-emergency number. If you wish to report a crime, please see our section on reporting crime.
