Below is an update from the local Thurlow Park ward Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) in relation to anti-social behaviour on the Peabody estate and Rosendale Rd.
The SNT have completed two warrants on the estate after we received information regarding the growing of cannabis. Hopefully, this has disrupted some of the problems in the blocks where youths had been hanging around. We will continue to act on information where we can which is all treated confidentiality.
There have been two mopeds speeding through the estate and Rosendale Road causing a lot of anti-social behaviour late at night. Both mopeds have now been issued with a Section 59 Police Reform Act 2002 warning which means that if they ride around anti-socially and commit one of the offences under the act, we can seize the moped they are riding.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team and Safer Neighbourhood Team have increased our patrols of the estate (including the blocks) and surrounding roads. We stop and engage with the youths whenever we can. The SNT are working closely with Peabody to find appropriate methods of dealing with the youths hanging around on the estate. Peabody have arranged for their wardens to patrol the estate which will begin in September 2015.
The Lambeth Council CCTV van has been deployed to Rosendale Road and has captured some useful images at the entrance to the estate.
