Keeping safe - in your neighbourhood

Sutton has a well-equipped Safer Parks Teams. They are funded by Sutton Council and staffed by Metropolitan Police officers.

The team patrols the boroughs parks and open spaces and have a Metropolitan Police equipped 4X4 Shogun to ensure they can reach any area of the borough quickly and safely. The team has access to night vision and thermal imaging equipment, which help officers to see in the dark. The equipment is especially useful during the winter months when the evenings get dark quickly.

However, to ensure they patrol the right parks at the right times we need to know your concerns. Please either contact your local Safer Neighbourhood Team or the Parks Team, who work seven days a week and are available during the day time on 020 8721 2268 or email
