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…
