Residents are reminded to go along to the Hounslow’s Safer Neighbourhood Board (SNB) meeting this Thursday [30 March] and have their say about policing and crime in their area.

The meeting will take place at Chiswick Town Hall, Heathfield Terrace, Chiswick, W4 4JN, from 7pm. 

Representatives from Hounslow Police will be on hand to answer questions on police performance in key areas such as crime, how they are working with local communities to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour plus responding to issues raised by residents at the previous meeting. There will also be representation from Hounslow Council.

The SNB board meet four times a year. Its primary role is to hold the borough police to account and scrutiny and to promote a high standard of policing and the reduction of crime.

It also works to identify issues of crime that are of priority and the monitoring of the policing service in Hounslow. It is made up of a cross-section of members from local communities and organisations from across the borough

Meetings are rotated as to where they take place, making it easier for residents to attend and raise issues on where they live and that affect them directly with the Board and Hounslow Police.

Councillor Sue Sampson, Cabinet Member for Community Protection, Hounslow Council, said: “These meetings are aimed at giving residents information across the board on what’s going on in and around their neighbourhood with policing.

“We encourage residents to attend these meetings if they can, as they can voice their concerns and any issues, plus ask questions about what is affecting them in the area they live and put these directly to police, the Council and other organisations.

“It is a case of if we know about it, then we can try to do something about it. These meetings are all about sharing information.”
