I signed up to the local Safer Neighbourhood Team’s newsletter about a month
ago, it makes a pleasant change for police missives not to contain the threat of
arrest for being critical of Bexley council.
It’s a good job there is no need to publish pictures of prophets; you can’t be sure whether that will get you
arrested, machine gunned, or international support from the Prime Minister.
My local SNT members seem to be a progressive bunch and their initiatives have so far at least, always been worth supporting.
The latest Newsletter said “If you run a community website or FB page, please spread the word”. The word, it needs to be said, is that they are asking people in the Thamesmead and Lesnes Abbey areas to complete a survey on their crime concerns.
I’m not aware of much crime locally, there are some unpleasant people in my street but I’ve not seen them do anything more than shout obscenities at each other and like everywhere else it seems there are the lunatics who ride noisy motorbikes without crash helmets.
But to the point… if you live in Thamesmead or on Lesnes Abbey ward the police would like to have your opinion. Click the Tweet image to take their survey.
They say it will take five minutes of your time but probably it will be less. If you’ve not seen their latest Newsletter you may see a copy here. (PDF.)
There’s probably a link somewhere that will sign you up for the Newsletter but I have failed to find it. Maybe someone will let me know what it is.
