Police commander to answer questions on rising burglary rates in Redbridge

Representatives from all parts of Redbridge society will attend a quarterly meeting with the borough’s police chief.

Borough Commander Sue Williams will deliver a performance report to members of the Redbridge Police Community Engagement Group on Monday evening at Forest House, in Clements Road, Ilford, following the revelation of a spike of burglary rates in the borough.

The forum includes four MPs, councillors, residents and community groups.

Liz Pearce, from Redbridge Council for Voluntary Services (CVS), said: “The main thing at the moment is the rise in burglary rates, and that is something that the police are really trying to address.”

A presentation on the fight against burglers will be given by Chief Insp Stan Greatrick and temporary Supt Paige Kimberly, and all members of the public are free to ask questions about the work of the police and safe neighbourhood teams.

Mrs Pearce encouraged any attendees to send her questions in advance to give the respondents time to prepare an answer.
