Residents living in Addison Ward are invited to an open meeting to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour issues in their neighbourhood with local police and council officials.

The "How are we doing on crime in Addison?" meeting will take place at Addison Primary School, Addison Gardens, W14 on Wednesday, November 7, from 6.30pm to 10pm.

In June, a similar meeting was attended by 50 residents in Munster ward and a wide range of issues were discussed including burglary, anti-social behaviour and crime prevention techniques.

The forums are part of a new approach the Police and Local Authority are taking in order to work more closely with residents to target crime on a ward based level.

The event is free to all Addison ward residents and businesses and will feature presentations from The Borough Commander, Chief Superintendent Lucy D'Orsi and Deputy Leader of the Council, Cllr Greg Smith.

There will also be a question and answer session, stalls where residents can get in-depth crime prevention advice and an opportunity to meet the local policing team.

Deputy Leader of the Council, Cllr Greg Smith says: "Crime has fallen significantly over the last seven years but we are not complacent and we want to build on this success.

"In these challenging economic times it is vital that local people help shape the crime-fighting priorities of the local police and council so that resources are targeted in the most efficient way possible. My basic message is, if you have a problem with crime in Addison – come along and tell us and we will sort it out."

Borough Commander, Chief Superintendent Lucy D'Orsi says: "We have been working hard to reduce crime across the borough and have achieved a series of significant year-on-year falls in the level of criminality. We will continue to build on this good work and with the help of the community we will target crime and criminals locally."

The event is supported by Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime and is organised by the council in association with the borough’s Neighbourhood Watch Association.
