On Thursday 21 October, the BID held an open security meet in Norfolk Square Gardens. The Metropolitan Police team and CST were on hand to take questions from the public, hand out security flyers and offer free security alarms to BID members.
Security is a top priority for the BID. As the nights get darker earlier and with recent media attention on women’s safety, we want to be as visible as possible.
On October 21 from 2-3.30pm, Metropolitan police officers and the Community Safety Team will be on hand in Norfolk Square Gardens to take questions and listen to any local concerns you may have.
Please come to the square and meet the team looking after our streets.
