We are seeing increasing numbers of cycle and e-bike enabled phones snatches in the BID area, particularly in the southern part of the district.
Despite being an acquisitive crime, it can be ferocious, sometimes violent, and very distressing for victims. The police have a number of operations and investigations underway.
We have organised a briefing for our members on this growing crime, in which you will hear from colleagues at Safer Business Network and the Metropolitan Police the tactics being used by offenders, and how to keep yourself, colleagues, customers and guests aware and safe.
This event is also open to our neighbours in residential communities and community partners such as schools, charities, churches and synagogues.
To register please email us and we will send you the link to the online meeting the day before the event.
