A recent meeting about anti-social behaviour on Lambeth Walk highlighted the fact that people are confused about how to go about reporting it. Ensuring anti-social behaviour is reported is crucial for the authorities to be able to do something about it.
Here are some contacts for various situations:
When a serious crime is being committed always call 999.
To report a non-urgent crime, however minor, call the police's new London-wide number: 0300 123 1212. They will try to deal with the problem as soon as they can. You can also call the Prince's ward Safer Neighbourhoods Team directly on their mobile: 07920 233835 (though they don't run a 24 hour service).
If a neighbour is making a noise overnight that you want to stop, call Lambeth's noise patrol: 020 7926 5999. They operate from 9pm to 3am Sunday to Thursday, and 10pm to 5am on Friday and Saturday. During normal office hours you can also report noise: 020 7926 5999.
To find a permanent solution to anti-social behaviour it's best to keep a diary of the incidents and report every incident to the relevant authority. They can then take action:
Lambeth Living Estates (eg Vauxhall Gardens, Whitgift, Ethelred Towers, Cotton Gardens, Kennings Way, Penwith Manor): 020 7926 6000
Ethelred TMO: 020 7926 8361
Cottington Close TMO: 020 7926 8105
Peabody Trust (eg Lupino Court): 0800 022 4040
London & Quadrant (eg Newquay House, Cornwall Square): 0844 406 9000
For private properties call Lambeth Council's anti-social behaviour unit: 020 7926 4000
