Police Commentary

  • Sale of Alcohol

‘This week has seen the team visiting all off licences across the ward issuing them with leaflets advising them on alcohol sales over the summer months, this leaflet is designed to educate those working in these shops about legislation surrounding the sale of alcohol.  By doing this we hope that this will assist in lowering alcohol related ASB across the ward, with in particular focus on Norbury Park.’

  • 20mph speed checks

‘We have been on Norbury Hill this week conducting speed enforcement in the 20mph zone, the highest reading being at 32mph by a vehicle.  Whilst on Norbury Hill we have recovered a moped which was shown as stolen from central London, this is now en route back to its rightful owner, we thank eagle eyed residents in respect of reporting this.’

  • Drugs Seizure

‘Friday night saw us particularly busy with a drugs seizure, a vehicle recovery and us responding to reports of two fights on the ward.  We understand that one of these incidents has caused some distress to residents and we have returned to the location today to conduct some reassurance patrols as well as a weapons sweep to ensure no weapons were in the area.  Our patrols will continue tonight around these areas.’

  • Stanford Rd Speeding

It has also been highlighted the speed of vehicles on Stanford Road, we have stopped a number of drivers in respect of this and will conduct enquiries as to how we can approach this situation longer term.

Overall a very busy week for us with more to come next week.’
