Since August, we’ve had the new Street Team of uniformed security staff on and around Edgware Road provided by the Marble Arch Partnership of local businesses.
You’ve probably seen Lawrence and Lofty out and about in their green uniforms. They have moved on pedicabs and beggars blocking the roads and pavements hundreds of times over the last two months, and helped more than a dozen vulnerable people engage with the services they need.
You can contact them on 07825 750777 or StreetTeam@marble-arch.london.
If there’s an emergency, or you suspect a child is involved, always call 999. If you want to report observations of illegal activity, but it is not an emergency, call 101, the next day if necessary, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Vehicle registration numbers with times and descriptions of loitering or kerb crawling are particularly useful. It takes a little of your time but it helps the Met create a useful database of local problems which helps them work out where to put their officers.
