Labour Councillors welcome Police efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour across Westminster

Labour Councillors have welcomed a three-month drive to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) and criminal damage in Westminster.

Operation Tranquil Wind is based on work undertaken by the Police earlier this year when over 40 streets were visited between March and May in order to listen and address concerns, provide crime prevention and deter offending. This helped see a decline in ASB calls by around 14% and the number of repeat callers by nearly 10% over the last 12 months.

Tranquil Wind will focus activity in the Strand & Whitehall, Church Street, Vincent Square and Hyde Park areas during June, July and August.

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said:

“Tackling anti-social behaviour is a key concern of residents right across Westminster and we welcome this Police initiative. Neighbourhood policing has been a big success in Westminster and we want this ‘on-the-ground’ style of police activity to continue so that the police and the community can work together to make local areas safer and more pleasant places to live”
