In recent months there has been a marked increase in reports of anti-social behaviour and crime across Wimbledon, but particularly car crime in Wimbledon Park and Wimbledon Village along with anti-social behaviour in the town centre. I have spoken to the local police about deterrence measures.
Wimbledon Police Station is a key tool in our local police’s armoury of tackling crime. I am proud to have campaigned to keep the police station open since 2016 and protected it from Mayor Khan’s proposed cuts until now. Following increases in policing numbers both nationally and locally in recent years it is vital our police have a base from which to protect our communities across the Wimbledon constituency.
