Making Stratford a safer place is our number one priority. By delivering effective localised solutions to reduce business crime and anti-social behaviour, we will continue to work with stakeholders to create a safer environment.



We will implement effective solutions to reduce business crime, anti-social behaviour and support agencies to tackle homelessness.

We will continue to provide additional security to the town centre through our ambassador service.

We will carry on offering our ambassador service to the area by servicing the original Stratford with regular patrols, reporting public realm issues, working with statutory organisations and liaise with local businesses over day-to-day matters.

We will introduce a local partnership to make it easier, faster and more efficient for members to report crime and share intelligence.

We will work with local stakeholders including LB Newham, the Met Police, Westfield Stratford and the London Legacy Development Corporation to take a holistic area wide approach to safety.

We will continue to provide local businesses with access to resources, training, meetings and initiatives to create a support network and direct contact to relevant agencies to increase safety and reduce business crime.

We will work on behalf of local businesses to campaign and lobby relevant stakeholders to ensure the right level of policing and enforcement is provided to the area.
