Hounslow Council and the Metropolitan Police work jointly to take action on all forms of hate crime and anti-social behaviour.

Both organisations have joined the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s call for a zero-tolerance approach to cowardly acid attacks, and welcome the new strategy aimed at strengthening the already solid joint working partnership between local councils and the Police.

Committed to keeping the borough safe, the Council and Hounslow Police are targeting knife crime, illegal trading and anti-social behaviour including fly tipping and also against acts of terror.

Residents are encouraged talk to the police and the Council, and to attend meetings such as the Safer Neighbourhood Board where local priorities are discussed and implemented.

Councillor Hanif Khan, Cabinet Member for Community Protection and Enforcement, Hounslow Council said: “Keeping our residents safe is our priority and we continue to work closely with the local police to achieve this.

“We also know of the importance of speaking to our communities in the borough as they all have a part to play in making it a safe and great place to live, work, go to school and to visit.

“For me it’s also personal as I value Hounslow’s diversity and I am proud that our communities live and work together very well.

“Residents with different faiths and beliefs respect each other and as a result we can share each in each other’s lives.

“We do however need to strengthen community cohesion and enforce the message that Hounslow does not tolerate attacks, extremism or anti-social behaviour.”
Chief Superintendent Raj Kohli, Hounslow Police Borough Commander, said: “Through the Community Safety Partnership and the Safer Neighbourhood Board, we will all work together to address the issues that affect the people we serve.”
