Neighbourhood Priorities for Community Policing

IssueActionDates

Large groups of youths congregating on cycles in Castle Baynard Street and Tower Place Plaza, causing obstruction to the road and cycle highway whilst committing anti-social behaviour and intimidating other road users and pedestrians.

A Section 35 (Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014) Dispersal Power was implemented for 48 hours, allowing officers to disperse any groups deemed to be behaving in an anti-social manner and seize any cycles used.

Officers have also engaged with local businesses and stakeholders in the Tower Plaza area to discuss measures that may reduce the likelihood of the area continuing to be used for this type of behaviour. Work has also been undertaken with the organiser of these events to ensure they are not organised to take place in areas of the City that will cause unnecessary alarm or distress to neighbouring residents or businesses.

The local community policing team continue to monitor the area and the issues raised, and will seek joint long term solutions should the problems continue.

If you have any concerns or comments regarding this particular issue, you can contact the Community Policing team at: community@cityoflondon.pnn.police.uk

Issue dated: 06/03/2019

Action dated: 24/05/2019

Increased Begging activity in the City of London.

The Community Policing team are aware of reports of increased rough sleeping and begging issues and have recently instigated Operation Luscombe to tackle this.

This is a long term operation targeting begging and associated antisocial behaviour (ASB). We are working with local partners and support agencies to provide support and assistance to those affected by these issues. This will involve those found to be committing ASB, the chance to seek assistance in the first instance, in order to deal with the root cause, as historically prosecution has offered little deterrence and has not necessarily prevented reoffending.

Those persons who do not engage with support services will be managed by way of Community Protection Notices (CPN’s) and potentially Community Behavioural Orders (CBO's) should the behaviour continue.

Intervention hubs will be held throughout the City over the coming months, supported by community surgeries, where we invite anyone concerned by local issues to come and speak with one of our team.

Details of our upcoming meetings and events can be found at: https://www.cityoflondon.police.uk/community-policing/Pages/Meetings-and-events.aspx or via our Facebook and Twitter feed @CityPolice.
