POLICE kicked off a crime awareness week in Kilburn, with a pledge to pump more resources into tackling crime in the area.
Chief Inspector, Louis Smith, in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in Camden, told a meeting of residents on the Alexandra and Ainsworth estate in Belsize Road, Kilburn, that another PC is being allocated to the Kilburn safer neighbourhood team (SNT).
Speaking last week about the challenges which faced the Kilburn SNT, Chief Insp Smith said: "One of the big issues is what we are going to do with Kilburn High Road.
"We are going to see how we can treat policing it as a joint venture between Camden and Brent - criminals don't recognise borough boundaries."
