We were out earlier patrolling the flats in Church Rise looking for any evidence of ASB including street drinking and drug taking - as promised to residents.

Some old reefer butts but nothing recent. Please let me know if you witness any as I’m aware of the impact on local residents.

Hello Sgt Biddle

I've heard reports of muggings on the footpath between the top of Trilby Road/Shipman Road and Sunderland Road/South Road - do you know whether these are recent muggings or old ones?

And on the subject, is there anything that can be done to improve safety (real or perceived) for people using that footpath? Are there any local funds from the Met and/or Lewisham council that could be used to carry out crime prevention works there?

Thanks

BigED

Dear all,

Sorry for not posting for a few days. I’ve been away on a Public Order course (lots of bricks and petrol bombs - so nothing like SE23 thank goodness!!).

A brief update. From the team today. PC Mick and others attended an address earlier and arrested a suspect for a shoplifting offence from a shop in Forest Hill. The suspect has been interviewed and enqs continue.

Patrols have taken place across the wards… we have suffered from a number of burglaries in the past weeks in perry Vale where entry has been gained via a rear window. Please take time this weekend to check your homes security!

My team and I will continue to work as hard as we can to keep the wards of Forest Hill, Perry Vale and Crofton Park as safe as possible!

Best wishes,

SgtBiddle

Hi,

I am a resident on Kilmorie Rd (Stanstead Rd end). We were burgled summer last year. I understand there have been numerous attempted attempted and actual burglaries on Kilmorie since then. Almost always via rear garden entry.

My neighbour informed me today that he caught someone jumping through his/our garden. This was at 3am this morning. I suspect this was either a failed burglary attempt or he/she just got caught in time.

There seems to be a big increase in burglaries in this area lately. Is the police force able to do anything more during the night? It seems to me that the alleys at either end of Kilmorie are a particularly popular means of entry into back gardens. Is there anything that can be done to secure these areas? I've raised this as an area of concern when we were burgled.

We executed a dangerous dogs act warrant yesterday.



Two dogs seized so enqs can continue.
And we also managed to arrest a man who’s been wanted for theft for some time at the same address!
A second chap jumped over the back garden wall when we knocked (we were round the back too!) for absolutely no reason other than he always does that when police knock!
He was met by two of my officers and a large hairy police dog!

Thanks for the updates!

Do you have anything specific related to thefts and people running through gardens on Kilmorie? Seems to be an uptick in activity recently.

Yes, Thanks for updating here.

Can you give any information on muggings/robberies on or around the footpath between Trilby Road and Sunderland Road?

thanks

There do seem to be a lot of folk who deem it acceptable to dump their old furniture on the street so hope you have success with this. Ditto xmas trees.

From the @MPSLewisham twitter feed last night… ‘Thanks to @NPAShq and dog unit for assisting #ERTA officers in arresting a male for going equipped to steal this evening. He was found in back gardens in Sunderland Road,SE23 and tried to run from officers. Luckily we were too fast for him!. #anotherburglaroffthestreets’

Great work keeping SE23 safe!

Yesterday in SE23 we conducted a number of arrest enquiries for wanted offenders.

We then responded to a call from care home staff to a resident armed with a knife having a Mental Health Crisis.
The patient was disarmed and has been safely taken by us to a Place of Safety for treatment under the Mental Health Act.
MH crisis isn’t something that we normally deal with as SNT Officers - although we do have good links with our care homes throughout the 3 SE23 wards as Response Team usually deal but I give this as an example of some of th variety of incidents my team come across.

On our way back we found one of our beggars outside the Co Op in Waldram Park. He’s been issued with a Community Protection Notice in the past and as he was in breach of it he was told he would be prosecuted by PCRichard. FYI the beggar is NOT homeless has been offered help and has access to free food etc.

We had reports of suspicious people in the Kilmorie Rd & Woolstone Rd area yesterday. Please be vigilant and report anyone who seems out of place.
Burglars have targeted rear windows of premises with another attempt y/day afternoon.

He has just been arrested.

Updates will follow!
