Strategic oversight with Superintendent (neighbourhoods policing) and heads of both Enfield and Haringey community safety. Local and Central policing teams conducting a number of short and long term operations.

Estate walkabouts with a focus on changing the environment have been undertaken with the ‘design out crime’ advisor, the council and DWO. These walkabouts inform measures that are to be taken to improve the physical environment, such as changing the lighting and removing cut-throughs and walls. A Public Space Protection Order is in place and both civil and criminal remedies are considered to deter activity.

A number of community meetings to update the public on police / LA action and activity. The head of the Enfield Independent advisory group was an observer on the last operation two weeks ago to ensure the public are aware of the policing response.
