SHSNT  (Surbiton Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team )

PCSO Belinda Craig and PC Steve Bibby


London is becoming safer: crime is decreasing, more crimes are being detected and more offenders are being brought to justice. But despite this, the public tell us they continue to feel insecure. That's why the Metropolitan Police is committed to the concept of Safer Neighbourhoods.

Safer Neighbourhoods provides:-
• a team of officers dedicated to every London borough
• a more accessible, more visible, more accountable police service
• local communities getting a real say in deciding the priorities for the area in which they live, allowing the police to provide long-term local solutions to local problems while maintaining a focus on reducing priority crime

Your team consists of one sergeant, two constables and three police community support officers (PCSOs).
The team is dedicated to the needs of the neighbourhood, with the policing priorities for our area decided in partnership with local stakeholders – you (the public), crime and disorder reduction partnerships (CDRPs), local authorities and other local organisations.

Our officers are trained to tackle and solve community problems, such as quality-of-life issues, such as anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, abandoned cars and graffiti.

Immediate response policing is dealt with by the core teams.

We want to work in partnership with you and other agencies to find a lasting solution.

The team is permanent, brought in to respond to local changes in crime and disorder.
The Metropolitan Police has tried to develop community policing before, but competing demands meant officers were often used in other areas of London, to help police larger scale events.
Safer Neighbourhoods teams are different because there are specific guidelines about where officers can and can't be used. This means that except for the most catastrophic or terrorist-related event, SN officers will stay where the public needs them most - in the heart of their dedicated neighbourhood.
