Crime Summit 2009

A day of workshops and discussions on local crime issues

The annual H&F Crime Summit is your chance to tell the authorities what you think about crime in your area.

This year’s summit, the third to be held in the borough, will take place at Hammersmith Town Hall on Saturday February 28 from 9.30am to 2pm.

More than 400 residents flocked to the town hall for last year’s event and a similarly large turnout is expected this time around as residents, together with representatives from the council and police thrash out crime problems on a street by street basis.

The Crime Summit, this year entitled ‘Your borough, your safety’, provides residents with an opportunity to explain to the authorities how H&F can be made a safer place.

The event will include workshops with the police and council officials, where residents will be able to air their views with the people who patrol their streets. In addition, there will be short presentations from senior police officers, including borough commander, Detective Chief Superintendent Kevin Hurley.

The theme for this year’s summit is 'enviro-crime' and the council’s estate wardens, street scene and street cleansing officers, together with the police and members of the Parks Constabulary will be on hand to discuss this important topic.

If you would like to book a place or want more information please email and provide your name and contact details. Alternatively, call 020 8753 2816.
