Police Liaison

The Ham & Petersham Police Liaison Group (PLG) was set up in 2001 by the Ham & Petersham Association to tackle local community concerns about antisocial behaviour and to encourage action against graffiti.

Our Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) was set up in 2005. On the 6th August 2006 the Police Office on Ashburnham Road was officially opened. Since the start of the SNT both crime and antisocial behaviour have fallen.

A member of the Ham and Petersham Association was elected as the first Chairman of the new PLG. The PLG Chair also represents residents' views at the Community Police Partnership (CPP) meeting held every two months in York House, Twickenham.

The PLG has four public meetings per year, where members of the public, police, local councillors and school representatives come together to discuss local issues. A short panel meeting to discuss ward priorities set by the community is held after the PLG. Members are encouraged to attend.

The following information is for your guidance but it may change at short notice and the Association cannot guarantee that it is always up to date. Please check directly with the Ham and Petersham SNT for confirmation of dates and location of meetings and any changes in phone numbers or contact details. You should also check the SNT website (the link is shown further down).
