Operation Safer Places continues in Lambeth
8:40am Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
Safer Neighbourhood Officers in Lambeth have been busy ensuring Operation Safer Places makes an impact on across the borough.
On Monday 12 August 2013 Streatham Wells SNT served an Environmental Protection Act 1990 section 80 notice on a premises on Sunnyhill Road, SW16. This is part of a continuing process to close the address, which is being used as a squat to return it back to the local council.
Residents nearby have complained about anti-social behaviour (ASB).
Acting Inspector Steve Jones said, “We have received reports from residents that loud music and instruments are being played around the clock. This notice is a positive step towards the squats closure. Streatham Wells SNT with its partners in Lambeth Council Community Safety has and continues to closely manage the address in the meantime.”
On Thursday 15th August Prince’s SNT closed a squat on Lower Marsh Street, SE1. It has been confirmed that the landlord has gained full possession back and its being secured by security full time. The address has been occupied by squatters and had caused numerous problems of ASB.
Clapham Common SNT has been targeting those responsible for vehicle crime within the Clapham Area. Many committing these offences do so to fund their drug and drink habit. Over a two week period seven people were arrested.
PS Mick Shea of Clapham Common SNT said, “This operation has been a great success. As well as the arrests we have conducted numerous stops which no doubt deterred would-be criminals. The PCSO’s also took part in leaflet drops and spoke to residents to offer crime prevention advice.”
