Kings Crescent estate


  • PC Hussain provides brief update on police activity at Kings Crescent estate. Police have been conducting regular patrols and some residents stated that there has been a slight improvement.
  • A resident from Therefield court (Kings Crescent estate) stated that ASB was still bad around the location. There has been reports of people hanging around the bin shed area taking drugs and by prostitutes. Police attended and caught two people who were hanging around the location. There are also concerns about prostitutes who are seen at 9:30am. These problems are apparent outside Therefield and Kelshall court.
  • Bianca Rembrandt updated residents about herself liaising with Annette Reid and cleaners who operate on the estate. The plan is to carry out further interventions, have stronger interactions and send out community protection warnings. There has been work around gathering as much information in a hope that the courts will work in our favour. Enforcement officers who operate in the area get challenged, we target problem addresses and hope offenders do not return.
  • Cllr Potter stated that most problem are early in the morning.
  • PS Durrant stated that we will look at calls and pay more attention to affected areas. We will also ask Op Vice to monitor the location to deal with prostitution. Op Vice is run by members of the safer neighbourhood’s team and more operations will be planned in the future.
  • PC Hussain stated that we conduct weapons sweep and recently we got an arrest at Bramfield court. This helps us to recognise suspects operating in the area. Officers also hope to conduct more patrols in the area.




Blackstock road


  • PC Hussain updates residents on a tri borough operation on Blackstock road. There has been an increased effort to combine officers from neighbouring boroughs in order to deal with ASB issues at location. We will also request task force to come along more regularly to help with issues on Blackstock road.
  • PS Durrant stated that we will request other officers from specialised units such as the task force to come from Mon-Thu. We will also ask street duties to also come along and show more visible presence.
  • Cllr Potter highlighted the issue with people not reporting matters enough to the police. Cllr Potter welcomes the news of Brownswood SNT bringing more officers to deal with ASB issues. Cllr Potter also stated that there is a walk around with Islington officers planned soon.
  • PC Hussain stated that we identified a doorway area next to the Sainsbury’s which will be continuously looked at and targeted.
  • One of the residents stated that on a positive note they have witnessed more visibility of officers at Blackstock road recently.
  • PS Durrant stated that officers from Islington are also helping patrol the area. The last operation carried out at the location helped gather a lot more intelligence with CCTV images. There will be a continuous effort to make these types of operations a more regular occurrence.



Green Lanes – Sainsbury’s


  • PC Hussain stated that we have more resources to tackle robberies and more patrols are conducted to prevent ASB issues.
  • One of the residents wished to highlight an area next to Clissold Park (Greenway road) where some of the main offenders hang around.
  • PC Hussain provided an update about recent police activity where 3 people were arrested around the location.
  • PS Durrant stated that we have combined officers from Clissold ward and Stoke Newington ward to patrol around Clissold Park. We have also requested Robbery squad to patrol the area in the evening time. The Met have also paid for a drone to cover the park area which would be a very useful tool to have.


Other Issues


  • PC Hussain stated that the police met with Clarion housing in order to suggest installing more CCTV around Barkway court. PC Hussain also stated that we have knocked on doors at Wilberforce road and Finsbury park road in order to encourage people to report crime as much as they can.
  • A resident wished to highlight an issue with very noisy drug dealing and ASB activity which takes place at Brownswood road, Wilberforce road and Mountgrove road.
  • PS Durrant states that we are aware of issues on Wilberforce road, Finsbury park road. We are working towards implementing a PSPO (Public spaces protection order) in order to deal with ASB issues. PS Durrant requests residents to continue in report to the police.
  • A resident wished to highlight an issue with very noisy bikes on Finsbury park road. This is normally between 1:30 – 6:30pm.
  • A resident from St johns court stated that he will be sending a letter to the estate manager (Jonathan West) and request more CCTV, re enforcement of the entry doors and better fencing.
