The borough Law Enforcement Team (LET) completed a 24-hour operation against anti-social behaviour on the Clem Attlee Estate last week. Officers also conducted weapon sweeps and visited local businesses, schools and parks.
The officers carried out high visibility patrols of every block and the surrounding area, including the entire estate, neighbouring parks, North End Road and local schools such as Fulham Primary school and Normand Croft community school.
During the operation, the LET officers also carried out door knocking engagement at residents’ homes, including Tom Williams House, Jim Griffiths House, Chuter Ede House, Ellen Wilkinson House, Manny Shinwell House, Nye Bevan House and Margaret Herbison House to talk to residents about issues they may have with anti-social behaviour.
In addition abandoned bikes in and around the estate were tagged and removed and waste inspections were carried out to follow up on fly-tip complaints in the area.
Officers provided both residents and businesses on North End Road with waste advisory letters detailing their collection schedule, and educated them on proper waste disposal methods women's and girls' safety patrols, especially around local tube stations and other hotspots with high footfall.
The team was joined on the Clem Attlee Estate by H&F Leader Cllr Stephen Cowan, who said, “We’re determined to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, which is why the council has funded 72 Law Enforcement officers to make the area safer.
“That’s part of our overall commitment to make Hammersmith & Fulham a no-go area for criminals. If you see the Law Enforcement Officers, say hello. They’re here to help.”
Since May 2021, the LET has responded to more than 4,000 calls from residents and businesses. The council says it is the largest team of its kind anywhere in the country.
72 LET officers work with the police to drive down environmental crime and anti-social behaviour.
You can also contact them on email@example.com or by calling the council's switchboard on 020 8748 3020 to report issues for them to investigate.
Where you are witnessing a crime and, or where you require an immediate response for an emergency, always ring 999.
A similar 24-hour operation will be carried out by the LET on the White City Estate on Wednesday 2 February.
