After a spate of thefts and muggings around Bartlett Park over Christmas and the New Year, local resident and campaigner Elaine Bagshaw is calling on the Council and Poplar HARCA to install more CCTV in the area.
"We all have a right to feel safe in our homes and communities. That's under threat around Bartlett Park. When residents have reported crimes and problems to the police we've been told the area isn't covered by CCTV. As it's clear the problem is increasing, I'm asking the Council and Poplar HARCA to work together to give us a better chance of catching the culprits and make everyone feel secure in the area again."
