Crime within the W11 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.

The most diverse amount of crime recorded on one road was the west cross route, unsuprisingly, given its amount of through traffic and easy escape. This also presents as burglary and theft from a person. This is a clear demonstration of how police differ crimes between individuals business and properties. As the majority of crimes are actually thefts of some sort here. This month we have also had a look at some other streets with a large amount of anti-social crime within the W11. Again Millers Walk and Phillimore Walk are high with this list, with Millers Way showing a low level of other crimes. Again, a strong private security, mobile security or manned security would reduce this level of crime.
