Brentford Police Target Drug Dealers
Action against crime combined with community activities
The Brentford Safer Neighbourhoods Team are combining decisive action against local drug dealers with community activities in an effort to reduce crime in the area.
Since it was established in April 2006 officers from the team have arrested 42 dealers and made a further 46 drug related arrests. In total 526 wraps of class A drugs have been seized.
They are also working in partnership with local community groups. As part of the 'Not in my neighbourhood' partnership initiative, the Haverfield and Brentford Towers Working Group are organising a clean up day in The Pit play area on Brentford Towers to take place on Saturday 20th October. This area is plagued by graffiti , anti-social behaviour and drug taking. As well as the Safer Neighbourhoods officers and residents, Hounslow Homes, the Council and Payback, a programme that works with young offenders, will be helping out.
