If you live, work in or visit the borough of Hounslow, you are invited to come along to the annual Community Safety Public Meeting, being held at the Civic Centre on Lampton Road on Wednesday 6 February 2019 from 5.30pm. 

The event is being hosted by the Community Safety Partnership and is designed to give local residents an opportunity to speak to key members of the Community Safety Partnership; the council, fire service, police and Cllr Kathrine Dunne, Lead member for Communities and Workforce.

Whilst Hounslow is one of the safer boroughs in London, there has been an increase in crime across the capital and safety in the community is a key priority for the partnership. Many initiatives are underway to tackle crime in Hounslow, such as the Online Watch Link that gives people real time information about crime in their area and the use of various powers to tackle anti-social behaviour.

If you have any questions or concerns about crime in the local area and would like to know what is being done about it, please come along and put your thoughts to the borough’s senior officials.

Superintendent Ricky Kandohla from the West Area Basic Command Unit said:

“I look forward to meeting many residents at the next public meeting for Hounslow. This is a great opportunity for the partnerships to work closely with residents and key members of the community, to discuss and address local concerns.

“There are a number of key priorities for the Met police and in order to address these; specifically, the recent increase in violent crime, it is essential that the partnership works together towards the same aim to tackle, reduce and stop further offending.

“I look forward to meeting with many of our local residents who can help support their local police by working together.”

Councillor Katherine Dunne, Lead Member for Communities and Workforce at Hounslow Council said: 

“The Community Safety Partnership brings together senior leaders of the borough’s key services to help make Hounslow a safe place to live, work and visit. At a time when violent crime is on the increase in London, public safety is of key concern for us as a council and we can assure you that we are working tirelessly with our partners to tackle the causes and consequences of crime. We want to hear from you so please come along to this event to tell us directly of any concerns or issues you may have."

There will be teas, coffees served from 5.30pm with registration and information stalls, with the meeting starting at 6pm and finger food from 7.30-8pm. 

This is a FREE public event but you must register to attend.
