Safer Stoke Newington

Copies of a new local policing and community safety newsletter for Stoke Newington Central were delivered to residents this week along with your usual copy of Hackney Today.

This is a pilot project funded by Hackney Council and the Police aiming to keep residents up to date with community safety and policing issues in their local area.

Hackney has some of the best crime reduction figures in London - dropping 32% in the last four years. In our ward, over the last year, crime has fallen by 5%; burglary by 23%; drugs offences by 7% and theft from motor vehicles by 8%.

The newsletter highlights some of the issues that our local Safer Neighbourhood Team have been focussing on. If you need to contact them call 020 8721 2922 or 07879 603482 or email stokenewingtoncentral.snt@met.police.uk. If you are interested in coming along to the local Community Advisory Panel meetings to help shape the Team's priorities, then the full details of upcoming meetings are here.

If you didn't receive the newsletter, you can download it here.
