Community Safety Ward Walkabouts and Roadshows (2017)

Residents are invited to attend a community safety ward walkabout in their local area. At the events you will be able to meet with local councillors, police and council officers to talk about any anti-social behaviour (ASB) issues in your area as well as play an active role in agreeing actions in a live issues plan for community safety partners to take away and respond to.

Community safety ward walkabouts

During the walkabouts, police and council officers will visit areas in ASB hotspots in each ward. Residents can talk about the issues concerning them face-to-face and discuss possible actions to reduce these issues. The walkabouts will be led by the local Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNT) and cabinet member for Community Safety, Asma Begum. The Police Borough Commander and/or Chief Inspector of Neighbourhoods will also be invited to attend along with ward councillors, ward panel members, housing providers, youth workers, drug outreach workers, Tower Hamlets Enforcement Officers (THEOs) and other community safety organisations in the borough. Information gathered at these events will also be vital in shaping the next police ward priorities, and residents can get further information on how to become a ward panel member for their area.


Aim of the ward walkabouts

An opportunity for residents to:

  • Meet and speak directly to senior members of the police, council and partners about their local crime and ASB concerns
  • Help to identify and agree actions to include in an issues plan
  • Find out how to become a ward panel member for their ward to help shape local police ward priorities
  • See how we work with other agencies and organisations, hold partners to account and build confidence in the police and council in dealing with local ASB issues impacting residents
