“If you would like to assist the Crystal Palace Triangle team in making your area a safer and better place to live, please contact us, we are looking for people to become part of our ward panel or our key individual network,” Sergeant Hill said.

Ward panels meet regularly to discuss the concerns facing the local community around crime and anti-social behaviour, and sets the priorities the local police team will tackle.

They also get involved in working with the police team and local partner agencies such as the council to find lasting solutions to these priorities.
