Brent Police launch crime success advertising campaign
PUBLISHED: 11:45 20 October 2014 | UPDATED: 11:45 20 October 2014
An advertising campaign highlighting crime success stories in the borough has been rolled out by Brent Police today.
Posters detailing what has been done to tackle crooks in individual neighbourhoods have been placed in trains stations, bus stops and phone boxes across Brent.
The localised campaign aims to raise awareness of the police activity taking place to tackle crime affecting the community.
One poster informs residents that 41 fewer personal crimes took place around Wembley Arena and Stadium during events due to an increase in plain-clothed officers patrolling the area.
Chief Superintendent Mickey Gallagher, Brent Police borough commander, said: “We have started a discussion with our communities where they tell us what concerns them most and what they want us to focus on and we have responded to those concerns. We need to let our communities know the results of our activities. This provides a real opportunity to tell the people of Brent what we are doing to keep them safe and reduce crime.”
The campaign will run for two weeks before being rolled out to further boroughs at different stages over an eight week period.
In total, 15 boroughs will see the messages displayed on their streets.
