Drug dealing/Using
The team have received some good information from residents regarding drug dealing in Brentford. Numerous warrants have been executed under Operation Hawk since the last update, resulting in arrests for possession with intent to supply Class A and B drugs.

PCSOs have been leaflet dropping in roads surrounding recent Operation Hawk warrants, raising awareness in the community regarding the local work Brentford Safer Neighbourhood are doing. This has led to further intelligence from the community.

A new role of sector intelligence officer established to obtain information received with efforts to collate intelligence for the subsequent application of search warrants from the Magistrates court.

Burglary is a particularly damaging offence for the victim and the surrounding community. Brentford SNT and Hounslow Police as a whole take this crime very seriously. Every offence which is committed is scrutinised by the Serious and Acquisitive Crime Unit to ensure no opportunity to identify offenders is missed. We have now introduced a tactic referred to as‘cocooning’ to follow up on every residential burglary. Any offence committed is managed by an experienced detective, we lead in following up with the victim and conducting door to door enquiries in the surrounding area to warn local residents of the crime, to identify witnesses and to look for opportunities to give crime prevention advice.

PCSOs are engaging with any residents they see reminding them of the importance of securing there house during the day and night. The team are working alongside the Borough Intelligence unit, identifying known burglars
within the local area looking to execute warrants in the near future. With
increased patrols and the use of covert officers in unmarked police vehicles
and duel patrol with local authority wardens.

The ASB (Anti Social Behaviour) Summer Initiative started on the 4th of June and runs until the 30th of September.

It is designed to allow the police to tackle the constant problems that occur in certain areas. There are various strands of ASB some of which are listed below.

If any form of ASB is causing you problems please do not hesitate to get in contact with local police via the various means of communication.

Some of you may have already been visited by officers during the recent "Street-A-Week" campaign. This is to assist the police in ascertaining where the problems are and using the right strategy to improve your quality of life.

There is an ASB surgery on August the 2nd at the church on Town Hall Avenue. Please feel free to come along and speak with officers with whatever concerns you have regarding ASB in Chiswick and Brentford.

Further to this "Theme Weeks" will run from the end of June to the end of September. Using all intelligence gathered we will be implementing various tactics and deployments to specified areas throughout each specific week in order to combat whatever the issues are.

As promised the ASB issues being targeted are drugs misuse/dealing, street drinking/begging, noise, rowdy behaviour, animal related problems, vandalism, abandoned vehicles, intimidation, prostitution and litter.
All information you provide WILL be actioned.

Syon Ward

Drug dealing/Using
The team have received images from Council wardens showing individuals dealing drugs. Warrants have been obtained from court and several warrants have been executed resulting in arrests for Class A drugs.

The team were recently on patrol in Ealing Road when they responded to a burglary in progress. They obtained a detailed description from the victim and started searching the local roads. They obtained good visual CCTV images from the wardens and were able to trace his route. This led to further evidence being found. Enquiries are ongoing to apprehend the suspect.

Theft and/or taking pedal cycles
The team continue to stop and account individuals on bikes due to the high volume of bike crime on the sector. Crime prevention stands have been held at high risk locations such as West Middlesex hospital.

Other Work
Operation “Street a Week” has been running for several weeks across the sector. Safer Neighbourhood officers have chosen several roads on the ward and knocked on every door to speak to residents. This Operation is used to gather intelligence from residents and really find out what issues are affecting them. Any issues are then resolved either by Police or partnership agencies. Issues coming to notice so far are neighbour disputes and noise pollution.
