Day of police action carried out in Queensbury

Residents given crime prevention advice by Safer Neighbourhood Team

A Safer Neighbourhood Team carried out a day of action involving residents in their fight against crime yesterday (Thursday).

As part of the day by Queensbury SNT, PCSO Tamsin Johnson ran a crime prevention stall outside Kingsbury train station with the assistance and presence of the Brent Community Safety Team.

The stall allowed the team to provide crime prevention literature to residents, commuters and shoppers.

PCSO Terry Souster and PCSO Kishan Sikotra also teamed up with officers from the British Transport Police (BTP) to carry out high visibility patrols around Kingsbury and Queensbury tube stations.

The patrols were carried out to address concerns about schoolchildren carrying out yobbish behaviour and fare evaders around the stations.

PCSO Souster said: “This was run as a direct response to local concerns to boost public confidence and their awareness of personal safety.
