The following new priorities have been agreed by the local Police Liaison
Priority 1 – Increase awareness of the increase in bike theft in the area and how to prevent it.
Update – We have been liaising with our colleagues at the safer transport team funded by TFL who will assist us in a bike marking initiative in Park Hill Park. Date to be announced.
This will reduce the temptation for thieves to target a marked bike as a unremovable sticker is placed on it as well as a UV marking so we can locate owners should it be stolen and recovered.
Priority 2 – Take action regarding the amount of beggars on George Street
We have liaised with THAMES REACH who will be providing us with metal signs along George Street with the slogan “killing them with kindness” which is part of their campaign to advise people that giving to beggars only perpetuates the problem. It will direct them instead to fund support services with a text donation etc.
