Law And Order

Generally Shortlands is one of the most crime-free wards in the whole Borough of Bromley. The SRA is part of the Shortlands Safer Neighbourhood Ward Panel, which includes our local police, residents and Councillors. When it meets every two months the Panel reviews the current local crime picture and agrees law enforcement priorities in the Ward for the future – currently tackling theft of and from motor vehicles, tackling anti-social behaviour, including speeding, and safeguarding vulnerable people.

This section of our website includes a fortnightly update on crime in Shortlands Ward and, when necessary, warnings about scams being run in our area. Below is the latest fortnightly crime report, prepared by our PCSO Adam Charles…

Dear Residents Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st June to 15th June. Great to see that our crime record remains so low.  Worrying to see a handbag snatch and disappointing to see that people were unable to behave on returning from a night out...

Dear Residents Please find below the crime record for the period to 31st May 22.  Very pleasing to see we’ve had nothing to add to it since the 24/05/22. In terms of crime prevention, I’d like to make some points regarding catalytic converter theft, even though we’ve only...

Dear Residents Please find below the crime record for the period from 15th April to 30th April. Very pleasing to see no burglaries and a relatively low amount of motor vehicle crime. On Saturday 30/04/22, we spent some time in St Mary’s Avenue with the speed gun.  Fortunately, no one...

Dear Residents Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st April to 14th April 2022.  Very pleasing to see only one crime on it.  In view of this I can concentrate more on community activities. On Wednesday 13/04/22, we attended the Community Cafe at St Mary’s...
