Today I organised a virtual meeting with the local Police and CAPE Chairman (Community Action Partnerships Enfield).
This is due to a surge in motor vehicle crime including theft from vehicles and theft of vehicles in Bush Hill Park Ward.
It is clear that based on the figures, that there is a significant under reporting of vehicle crime currently. This makes the job of the Police harder, in terms of tracking trends, activity and descriptions of the criminals.
The Police are utilising the security camera footage supplied by residents to help indentify the culprits when they are on patrol. Thank you to everyone who has submitted the footage.
In addition the Police are deploying additional resources to the peak times that these crimes are occurring.
Some motor vehicle crime is preventable – please always ensure your car is locked and valuables are not on view/left in the car.
Together we can reduce crime in Bush Hill Park Ward, but only by working together.
Non emergency crimes can be reported online: https://www.met.police.uk/ro/report/ocr/af/how-to-report-a-crime/
Does it feel like the situation could get heated or violent very soon? Is someone in immediate danger? Do you need support right away? If so, please call 999 instead
