Crime within the W8 postcode is heavily led by Anti-Social Behaviour and crimes involving Violence or Sexual offences. In our time as mobile security patrols throughout central London, we have noted that these types of criminal activity are greatly reduced by the presence of a patrol. Anti-social behaviour especially can be reduced simply by the presence of a marked patrol, or by having the presence of a combination of a manned security patrol alongside a trained dog.  Good prevention measures for this type of activity are paramount, but so is solid first response. This can stop such crimes from escelating.

Beyond these two key and prevelant crimes, there are many other types of crime that occur often that private security patrols can support in reducing. Notably, Bicycle Theft, Burglary and Vehicle Crime.

The streets with the most amount of crime within W8 is unsuprisingly the shopping area. This is due to the high amount of robbery that can take place in the area with crimes such as shoplifting. Phillimore Walk and Silver Road, being just off of the main highstreet, whilst also residential, have high levels of crime also. Whilst the shoplifting elements may be due to the shops backing onto this road. There is a lot of theft from cars and criminal damage due to the high footfall and easy nature of moving between the bustling roads and quieter side streets.
