This evening I attended the Selsdon & Ballards Local Policing Team Panel meeting at the Selsdon Centre for the Retired. Progress is reported as good on the “Ward promises” which are the three areas agreed to be the focus for our local policing team.
· The areas of the Addington Road identified as locations for anti-social behaviour are patrolled regularly. A recent arrest has resulted in a case going to court.
· Burglaries are generally low in Selsdon but are still a risk. People are advised to be vigilant and especially not to leave windows open. Motor vehicles should always be locked when unattended.
· Speeding is still a problem, especially at certain locations. The police are aware.
On the High Street work has started on the former HSBC bank site, part of which has permission to become a fast food outlet. The work seems to have stopped for the moment but we can expect this to open before the summer. The changing nature of the High Street with more fast food outlets and some traditional shops closing will require monitoring.
The next ward panel meeting will be in May. Twitter users can follow our local policing team at @MPSSelsdon.
