We’ve had drug deals done on the road in front of our apartment building; we’ve had dealers doing deals on the steps. We’ve had young men park where Narrow dead-ends on the Highway and huff and leave canisters everywhere. We have had our bin room broken into; my bicycle was stolen within a month of our moving here. We have had packages stolen from the front lobby and graffiti sprayed onto our building and along the sidewalk and which STILL has not been cleaned off (the sidewalk was done over a year ago).

We have made police reports. We have sent in license plate numbers to the police. In only one instance did the police actually respond and do something (to the repeat offender who stole the packages). For everything else? Nothing. Silence. No added patrols despite our requests. Letters sent to the folks whose license plates we’ve captured on CCTV which don’t seem to do a whit of good.

Policing here is laughable. You have high crime areas which you know about and about which you do nothing.

You want to capture my voice? How about capturing and charging these offenders instead?

From my observations, serious violence and crimes are issues that are cultivated by a lot of resources for youth and young people and not enough opportunities for youth and young people to get involved in the community in a meaningful way. There is little support for parents also and most communities have a bad relationship and poor mindset about youth, displaying this in their interactions. When youth do not feel connected with their community and have nothing to do, rather due to affordability or no access, this creates antisocial behaviour. Property breeds crime. There are so many empty buildings that could be used as teen centres or something that could help youth have more opportunities to volunteer, learn a skill, enjoy a hobby or be a mentor. I see so many opportunities to the community to just lead by example of being kind and courteous. More often I see, bus drivers closing their doors on teens attempting to get access, store employees laughed as a youth fell off his scooter, and the overall attitude towards youth is just disappointing. We as a society have to find more ways to get youth to be invested in their communities and see themselves as an important part of its upkeep. When communities come together with a mindset to help each other for the whole, we all benefit and society is safer.

We have one of the highest cycling thefts in London ( as per the headlines in 2023), I have had many reports of people’s bike being stolen from there balconies on first and second floor, when out cycling they have been robbed on them.. On numerous occasion I have had attempts for people trying to take my bike. And more than often they will be carrying an offensive weapon so you will have no choice but to give them your property. What will be done about this,
How will you change the status to Tower Hamlets having a low bike theft rate? What measures will you take to ensure the residents of tower Hamlets are safe when they lock there bikes up at night and when they are cycling?
