YOUR LOCAL POLICE
Police and your Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT)
Your SNT are your police in your local community. They work together with local communities to identify and tackle issues of concern such as tackling anti-social behaviour, graffiti, disorder or other quality-of-life issues.
An SNT is aligned to each ward, and has one dedicated sergeant, PC and PCSO (Police Community Support Officer). In addition, there are also a number of neighbourhood officers that work across several wards (usually across five specific wards in Croydon) and can be used to tackle issues across the local ward boundaries within their area. This change to the way local neighbourhoods officers work came about in 2013 in order to give officers more flexibility in deploying resources across local ward boundaries, without losing the focus on dealing with local issues identified by the community.
The difference between these officers and other borough police officers is that the community, not the Metropolitan Police set their priorities. In addition, SNT police officers cannot be assigned to duty elsewhere in the borough
