Havering police to host community engagement events to discuss policing in the borough.


Police in Havering will be holding a series of community events across the borough over the next four weeks to meet with residents and businesses to promote crime prevention advice and give those attending the chance to speak to officers.

Safer Neighbourhoods Team officers will be available at the events to give locals the opportunity to talk to officers about the issues that matter most to them and for police to share what they are doing to tackle crime in the area.

During the events, a screening of the new BBC documentary, The Met, aired the previous evening, will take place and talks from local officers will include details on how the community can “Get Involved” to support policing in the borough through the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, becoming a volunteer and for the youth of the borough, how to become a Volunteer Police Cadet.

The events will take place at Havering Sixth Form College, Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch on four consecutive Tuesdays, between 16 June and 7 July. All events will be held between 17:30hrs and 19:30hrs.

All events are open to the public on a first come, first served basis.

Inspector Claire McCarthy, from Romford Borough, said: “I would encourage anyone who has an interest in, or question about policing in the borough to come along and have a chat with my officers.

“We want to make Havering a safe place to work, visit or to reside in and we can do that with the help of our communities.”
