Crime Prevention Advice
Report a Crime
Many crimes tend to happen on the spur of the moment, with thieves often taking advantage of open windows or valuables left on display in a car. However, by taking a few simple steps, you can avoid many of these crimes.
The Home Office have produced information and advice on how to reduce crime by protecting:-
1. Your home
2. Your Identity
3. Your Valuables in pubic
4. Your Vehicle

The Online Watch Link (OWL) is a community messaging service from the Metropolitan Police Service that provides news and information about policing activity or initiatives, crime prevention advice as well as major incidents affecting your area.
Except in exceptional circumstances the sending of messages will be restricted to e-mail delivery.
Through the OWL system you can receive messages from your local Safer Neighbourhood Team, borough police or, in the event of a major incident or event affecting the whole of London, from other Met teams.
In order to receive messages you will need to register your details. This information will enable us to send you messages relevant to the areas you live and work. Anyone can register, whether you live, work or travel in London. To register, follow the link here or cut and paste https://www.owl.co.uk/met/ in your internet browser.
Once you have registered you will receive messages via email unless you have specified otherwise. On some occasions it may be appropriate for messages to be sent via text messages or voicemail.
