Arson and anti-social behaviour reduction success

Published Friday, 16 March 2018

Crimes such as arson, fly-tipping and antisocial behaviour have fallen in targeted areas as part of a multi-agency initiative latest statistics show.

Statistics show that reports of arson have declined by 46%, with anti-social behaviour reports also declining by 29% in the targeted areas since the initiative began in April 2017.  The Community Impact Days aim to reduce or stop crime and the negative impact it has on the community in areas such as Cray Valley, Mottingham and Penge.  The 2 year operation is funded from the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), with the council and other Safer Bromley Partners such as the Metropolitan Police, the London Fire Brigade and Clarion Housing working with other organisations, including voluntary groups all working together in a carefully co-ordinated approach.
