Crackdown in Hanwell
Joint partnership day in W7
A recent crackdown by police and council officers in Hanwell led to arrests, a temporary restaurant closure and concerns that four properties were fire risks.
The Partnership Day took place on on March 17th, in the morning police descended outside Viaduct Public house, Uxbridge Road, and held an automated number plate reading (ANPR) operation.
• Two vehicles were seized for No Insurance under operation reclaim
LBE Council Envirocrime prevention enforcement team had 14 vehicles inspected for carrying waste/waste carrier license compliance.
Joint visits made to several problematic premises (by LBE Community Safety, Licensing, Environmental Health, Envirocrime, London Fire Service and local Police) which resulted in:
• Two notices of planning enforcement
Mobile crime prevention unit involving the LBE PCSO team were operating in Boston Road Triangle area supplying local residents with information and advice on crime prevention issues involving robbery, burglary and anti-social behaviour and conduct high visibility patrols (HVPs) in the area to deter crime and provide reassurance for the local community. This resulted in:
• One Section 5 public Order Act penalty notice issued
PS Naeem Fazal of Elthorne Safer Neighbourhoods Team said:
“This partnership operation has yet again proved the importance of joint work as well as local knowledge of all participants needed to address the issues important to the local community. This no doubt will increase the level of public trust and confidence in Police in Ealing.”
