Dear SE23 citizens…

I'd like to second that - it's reassuring to see community involvement from our local police officers.

Hi, I am the Sgt for Forest Hill, Perry Vale & Crofton Park Wards.

This started as updates re a spike in robberies in Perry Vale.

At 6am this morning we responded to local residents concerns about drug dealing and ASB by executing a drugs warrant in Stanstead Rd.

Seven people were arrested and are currently at Lewisham Police Station being interviewed.

Believed heroin, crack cocaine and cannabis were recovered - as well as a large quantity of cash and a stolen motor scooter.

Enquiries continue…

This week my team has: conducted visible patrols on the 3 wards, executed a drugs warrant leading to 7 arrests for Class A&B drugs supply & money laundering, recovered a stolen motorbike, visited local youth groups & churches, continued to investigate a number of local crimes, conducted arrest enquiries for suspects for the crimes and for others wanted on warrant, liaised with @LewishamCouncil and housing providers about ASB issues, completed urgent case papers for trials, sent drugs to the lab, arranged phone downloads, met with @elliereeves and ‘walked the Met’, ditto with @MartinHewittMPS , assisted @MPSSpecials officers with an arrest… oh and been out on patrol on the 3 wards (did I mention that?)
Thanks to them from me AND thanks for the community support we know we have!

Oh… almost forgot…

And still found time to respond to questions about lack of policing cover on the wards by @PoliticsPos1

Not bad for a team 2 PCs & 1 PCSO per ward!

And PCGillian even managed to sneak a quick arrest in yesterday of someone wanted for various offences and who was being recalled to prison!

So a busy day yesterday: 2 x people charged with possession of drugs following our warrant in Manor Mount on the 24th November. Both to court on the 2nd Jan 18.

Lots of foot patrol in both Forest Hill & Perry Vale.

One arrest (by me) of a beggar in London Road. The chap has previously been issued with a Community Protection Notice banning him from begging in Perry Vale. Obviously he thought he could move to Forest Hill…

He’s also been warned not to beg on numerous occasions. He is also NOT homeless and has access to free food.

I was approached by a few concerned citizens asking why I’d arrested a beggar. I told them that it’s a Perry Vale Ward priority and did point out that the chap had actually been warned on numerous occasions to stop.

I know it’s not the biggest crime in the world but there does come a time for enforcement.

I'm glad you are dealing with fake beggars - if they have homes and food it is mean to beg as they are taking charity form people who need it. I just wish BTP were as proactive on the Overground line - we see the same people again and again begging and I have no idea if they are genuine or not
now if only you could do something about the large number of adults riding their bikes on the pavements.............

Another busy day. PC Mick & PC Sam have interviewed a young chap for criminal damage offences. The chap has admitted all four. Report to Youth Offending Team…

PC Kate and PC Richard have arrested a man for being wanted for assault and breach of a court order.
He will be going to court tomorrow.

Colleagues from @MPSLewisham will be at work throughout the Christmas period…

I’m in on Christmas Eve with PCMick & PCSOAndrea - we’ll be at St George’s in the morning - then I’m off to Blackheath to manage their Christmas parade.

For NYE I’ll be back during the day. PCGillian, PCKate and PCRob are on for Night Duty keeping Lewisham safe…

Happy Christmas SE23.com !

Dear Se23.com…

I’ve been out today with PCSOAndrea in Forest Hill and Perry Vale speaking to two residents of the Cannonby Road area who have been unfortunate victims of burglary over the past few days.
Entry to both premises was via a rear door or window.
In one case tools from a shed were used to smash the patio door glass.

I would ask that you check your gardens security and think about outside lighting etc.

I also visited the Church Vale flats where we’ve had complaints of drug taking and general ASB by youths in the stairwell. I’ve tasked my team to visit the block as often as possible when on duty as this behaviour is really impacting on local residents there.

Back tomorrow for more!
