We also saw figures from across Hackney which revealed considerable decreases in the number of bicycle thefts and robberies. The most common crimes in our ward are theft from people and criminal damage and the local police are working hard to address this. Your local ward councillors welcome all the hard work that the team do to engage with the community and keep our area safer.
Residents set priorities for the coming two months:
- Anti social behaviour on Smalley Road Estate
- Drug dealing on Somerford Estate
There was also a report back that a known drug dealer on Somerford estate had been evicted - with the police and Hackney Homes working together to help make life on the estate better for all residents.
