New Police initiative tackles rise in crime

Police have responded to a rise in crime in Chiswick by creating dispersal zones in Turnham Green and Homefields wards. Police can order anyone they believe to be intent on criminal activity to leave the area.

Extra back up from teams trained to use tasers and equipped with high powered vehicles are also announced for the West Area Basic Command area, which includes Chiswick and Ealing.
