Get involved

There are many ways in which you can help improve community safety in your neighbourhood and support victims of crime:

Local Police Volunteer Cadet scheme

Kensington and Chelsea police have a local police volunteer cadet scheme. It is aimed at young people aged 14 to 19. Cadets learn and practise a whole range of skills and activities including drill, first aid, map reading and team building exercises.

Cadets meet once a week and do activities that usually include a drill/inspection, physical activity, a guest speaker or input on a police related topic. Cadets get involved in other activities at weekends and in school holidays; such as camping trips.

For further information contact PC Jayne Richardson-Griffith on 020 8246 0715 or email

Neighbourhood Watch scheme

Contact your local police Safer Neighbourhoods Team for details on how to join an existing scheme or for information on how to set up a new scheme in your area.

Visit Neighbourhood Watch for additional information and latest news.

Join your local Safer Neighbourhood Team Ward Panel

Your local Safer Neighbourhood Team Ward Panel sets and monitors local policing priorities. Information on Ward Panels is available from the Metropolitan Police website at Kensington and Chelsea Safer Neighbourhoods.

Community Police Engagement Group

The Community and Police Engagement Group (CPEG) is a vital link between the public and police giving local people the opportunity to have their say about crime in the borough. The Police and Community Consultative Group (PCCG) agreed to change its name and it is now  known as CPEG. This reflects the groups efforts to re-focus on engaging with residents and community groups. All CPEG public meetings start at 6pm and includes refreshments.

Please check CPEG for further details of the venue, themes and speaker.

If you would like to be involved in the group and its work, or would like more information, please contact the administrator through the CPEG.
