Crime & Safety

Under my leadership the council has invested £1.5M in 41 ANPR cameras.

 

With police numbers cut, we are investing in the safety of our residents.

 

I have invested heavily in our enforcement team to help reduce the impact of police cuts.

We have created a £50,000 community Safety Fund to support neighbourhood watch schemes and community groups.

 

The fund helps to promote good citizenship and support those in our community who feel they can assist in crime prevention.

 

We are rolling out a programme of new LED streetlights across the Borough meaning more environmentally friendly and financially efficient lighting, while increasing resident safety.

As we are approaching Christmas, I have asked our police chiefs to focus more resources on tackling burglaries. Even though the police are stretched with budgets and officers cut, they are still responding as best as they can.

Last week, Operation Celtic began in Redbridge. Late-night patrols are taking place across the borough to target anti-social behaviour and burglaries.

Many of these patrols will be undertaken by plain clothes officers in unmarked cars. As officers step up patrols, they will also be targeting prolific offenders so that any potential crime they are seeking to commit is deterred.

I am asking residents to support us in making Redbridge safe by reporting suspicious behaviour to 101. If you are witnessing a crime taking place, you can call 999.

It is sometimes quicker to report anti-social behaviour online: www.met.police.uk/ro/report/asb/asb/report-antisocial-behaviour/

Two weeks ago, I announced a new biodiverse woodland in Seven Kings Park. Many residents showed a keen interest in participating in planting the new trees and plants.

Please click the link below to find out how you can get involved. It would be great to see you there!

www.treesforcities.org/sevenkingsparkI’m really pleased to be able to share some exciting news on Seven Kings Park.

Our Council has partnered with Trees for Cities to plant a brand new biodiverse woodland just to the north of Seven Kings Park. The new woodland will include Alder, Hornbeam, Walnut and Oak trees and we will begin planting next week to coincide with National Tree Week.

As the trees grow they will not only create a beautiful woodland for local people to enjoy, but they will also help clean the air and create a natural environment to support habitats and food for urban wildlife, like hedgehogs and bats.

Trees for Cities is the only charity of its kind working nationally and internationally to plant trees in cities to improve lives and cultivate lasting change in neighbourhoods.

The charity has been working with Redbridge Council for several years forming a partnership that has led to a number of successful environmental initiatives including new woodlands and orchards in Goodmayes, Hainault, Woodford and Roding Valley, and new trees for South Park, Loxford Park and Barley Lane.

20 years ago today, our entire nation was shocked by the senseless killing of 10-year-old Damilola Taylor. As we remember him today and share his family's grief, we need to reaffirm our commitment to ridding our society of youth violence and knife crime.

"Damilola had ambition, he wanted to change the world. After 20 years, this is how I would like him to be remembered, as a boy of hope. Our boy of hope.” Richard Taylor OBE reflects on the legacy of his son: bit.ly/36clCmh

At full council tonight I announced further details on our council's plans to renovate the Woodford Green Library.

We'll soon be consulting with local people on plans to open a brand new gym alongside the revitalized library.

We're proud to invest in Redbridge
