Keeping safe - in your neighbourhood

Suttons Safer Neighbourhoods Teams (SNTs) are dedicated ward-based police teams. There is one SNT for each of the 18 wards in the borough. Each team consists of police officers and police community support officers (PCSOs) and are dedicated to making your neighbourhood a safer place to live in, work in and visit. We listen and talk to you, and find out what affects your daily life and feelings of security. Our priorities are then set by the local community and we work with you and other agencies to find a lasting solution.

The SNTs work with communities to tackle issues of concern identified by local people, residents and businesses. They work closely with Sutton Council, other statutory partners and local voluntary groups to provide sustainable long-term solutions through effective problem solving.

The officers on your SNT spend most of their time out on patrol in your neighbourhood, meeting the community and identifying and dealing with those crimes and issues you have told us cause you most concern. We have increased the hours of coverage and the number of Police officers working within your neighbourhood to focus on local promises and priorities.

Your SNT wants to hear from you. If your call is not answered, please leave a message on the answerphone or send them an email. A member of the team will get back to you.

SNTs are not there to provide a 24-hour response, this is the role of response team officers. Response team officers do pass on information to SNTs as appropriate.

These contact details should not be used for any communication that might require an emergency response. In an emergency you should dial 999, for all other calls to the Metropolitan Police Service please call 101, our non-emergency number. If you wish to report a crime, please see our section on reporting crime.

You can find the dates of meetings on the Metropolitan Police website.
