Residents are invited to attend Hounslow’s Safer Neighbourhood Board [SNB] meeting next Tuesday, 6 December 2016.

The meeting will take place at the Civic Centre, Lampton Road,Hounslow, TW3 4DN, from 7pm.

At the last meet in September,the SNB decided to rotate where meetings will be held, making it easier for residents to attend and raise issues with the Board and Hounslow Police, from where they live that affect them directly.

Raj Kohli, Hounslow Police Borough Commander will be at the meeting to answer questions from residents on police performance in key areas, such as crime, how the police are working with local communities to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, plus responding to issues raised at the previous meeting.

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

The Board work to identify priority crime issues and monitor the policing service in Hounslow. It is made up of a cross-section of members from local communities and organisations from across the borough.

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, voice concerns, issues and questions about what is affecting them in the area they live and to put these questions 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 that information.”
