Lee Canter of Redbridge Safer Neighbourhoods said initiatives have been put in place to counteract the spike in crime.
“Due to the recent increase in burglary in the Clayhall and Barkingside area, Redbridge Safer Neighbourhoods officers have been focusing on burglary offences to complement the ongoing Operation Mexico initiative tackling burglary and robbery,” he said.
“Police patrols in hotspot areas have been increased and burglary arrests have been made.”
Inspector Canter said some residents will also receive a police kit in the next few days.
