Forum Meetings

Regular Invitation to all residents to engage with Neighbourhood Police

Forum meetings are held every four months. They are open meetings which anyone can attend, and they are publicised widely in advance.

The meetings are an opportunity for engagement between residents and Neighbourhood Police. Senior representatives of our Neighbourhood Police teams report on recent crime trends, and on actions on previously set focus areas. There is plenty of time for open and often wider ranging discussions, sometimes with guest speakers or subject experts invited. We encourage as many residents, businesses and groups as possible to attend the meeting, to ask questions and air views.

Meetings are preceded by a survey inviting residents to list their top areas of concern. These will be used to inform discussion and setting of future ‘focus areas’ by a panel comprising Chairs of the 7 Community Boards or their representatives.

Minutes and reports from the meetings are made available on this website soon after the meeting. These are publicised on the website and elsewhere.

Neighbourhood Police current focus areas


Burglary prevention

Led by the police, supported by the community; this will be tackled through pursuing offenders, crime prevention activities including Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) operations, crime reduction events and education.

AntiSocial Behaviour

We will identify key areas to target high visibility patrols. We are working together with our Community Safety colleagues to identify and deal with perpetrators. Our Schools officer is providing educational inputs at local academies in order to reduce the likelihood of ASB. We are also working with private and social housing sectors to deal with those who cause nuisance through excessive noise. We risk assess repeat victims and ensure that appropriate support agencies are involved where required.

These were set at the Chiltern Community Forum Meeting on September 23rd 2020. Thank you to all who attended the meeting and completed the survey. More information available at
