Making our district a safer place to be

Making our District a safe place to be

Over the past few weeks we have been working on building a strong relationship with both Hackney and Islington’s Safer Neighbourhood and Counter Terrorism teams. Through the coming months you will see this relationship strengthen to bring you a variety of crime prevention initiatives. We also hope to establish a ‘Safe and Secure’ steering group.

In future newsletters there will be an area dedicated to the police teams, so you can get to know them and understand what work is being achieved. If you would be interested in talking part in a safe and secure steering group please email


In the meantime, we encourage you as a business (if not already done so) to join the Old Street Community Security and Resilience forum. This is a forum that allows the real to benefit from additional security resources, security training and arrangements. To register you interests or gain more information please email The police also offer counter terrorism training at different levels called project project Griffin and Argus. It is really important for businesses to take part in such training should the worst case scenario take place.
