The Leader of Redbridge Council, Cllr Jas Athwal, said:
“Tackling crime in Redbridge is one of our Council’s top priorities. We are working closely with the local police to prevent criminal behaviour and to catch perpetrators but we want to hear from local people.
“This public virtual meeting is a great opportunity to hear about new anti-crime initiative and tips to keeping safe over the winter and to ask any questions you might have.
“Everyone is welcome to ask questions during the meeting but to make sure we get a chance to answer them all please submit questions in advance if you can.”
East Area’s BCU Commander, Stephen Clayman, said:
“I am looking forward to hearing what things are concerning Redbridge residents and to provide more information on what my teams are doing to tackle crime and keep people safe.
As we enter this winter season, we see a shift in the type of crimes happening in Redbridge. I hope this webinar gives you some helpful crime prevention tips, and some reassurance that we are listening to you.”
