Find your Safer Neighbourhoods team
Safer Neighbourhoods provides:
- a team of officers dedicated to every London neighbourhood;
- a more accessible, more visible, more accountable police service;
- local communities getting a real say in deciding the priorities for the area in which they live, 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. Therefore, your team adjusts its shift pattern to address these priority issues.
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 our non-emergency number. If you wish to report a crime, please see our section on reporting crime
