In an emergency, dial 999 / non-emergency 101
Our Estate is covered by the Hanger Hill Police Safer Neighbourhood Ward team.
Thankfully, our Estate's crime rate is well below the average for London and Ealing as a whole, but this is London so we're not immune. There have been occasional attempted and successful break-ins, police raided a cannabis farm on Queens Drive, a catalytic converter was cut from a vehicle and a motorcycle thief tried to snatch a laptop case from someone walking along Princes Gardens!
Police advice is to ensure side passages are secure, service road gates are kept locked, no valuables are left in cars and windows and doors are kept locked when nobody is at home.

Our local Police team
The Estate is covered by the Hanger Hill Police Safer Neighbourhood Ward Team. At the time of writing (June 2020) this comprised a sergeant, two constables and a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO). The team hold regular "cuppa with a copper" events and can also provide crime prevention advice as well as support in case of criminal or anti-social behaviour.
The team is not a substitute for the 999 emergency service, which should be contacted if immediate Police, Fire or Ambulance assistance is needed. Team members can often be seen in and around the Estate and welcome talking to residents directly. Non-emergency calls can me made by dialling 101 and the team can also be contacted on 07879-694830 or by email at Hangerhill.SNT@met.police.uk.
