Crime within the SW5 postcode is heavily led by Anti-Social Behaviour and crimes involving Violence or Sexual offences. Common crimes comitted within central London, which has led to our private security teams to be especially vigilante and aware of such occurances. 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, Other Theft, Burglary and Vehicle Crime.
