It has come to the attention of local police officers that some residents are not reporting crimes correctly and through the appropriate channels that will ensure they get the best police service that can be offered. It is imperative that in an emergency you should call 999, for example when the suspect is on scene, or has recently left. In cases where it is not an emergency, for example for something that happened a few hours ago, a couple days ago etc., please call 101, alternatively this can be done online using the Met Police website, or by going to your nearest police station, Romford.
The ward mobile phone, 0208 721 2512, should not be used to report emergencies or crimes, it can be used as a last resort, or if you would like a home visit, crime prevention, or things along those lines.
Should you have any queries please don’t hesitate to call PC ED ZOLTAN on 0208 721 2512. Or email [email protected]

At the Emerson Park Ward meeting held on 11th December at Hornchurch Police Station, it was reported that our long-standing PCSO (Police Community Support Officer) had been moved to another ward in the Borough which needed more staff, thereby reducing the manpower available in Emerson Park.
Following the closure of the North Street Hub I advise that for Emerson Park residents our local policing team will be available to meet up with residents . They have arranged them at a variety of venues and times up to the end of December 2018 to try to make them more accessible to everyone.
If you wish to chat to your local police team do come along
Recently a member of the EPAGRA committee received a phone call purporting to come from BT who informed them they had a problem with their internet access. They told the caller that their account was not in fact with BT but another internet provider.
The response was that BT owned the cables that provided the internet and if the member did not buy a piece of software they would have their internet cut off and they would be blacklisted by the internet companies.
The committee member very sensibly hung up and did not agree to anything.
BEWARE THIS IS A SCAM AND ALL THESE PEOPLE WANT TO DO IS TO SELL YOU A PIECE OF SOFTWARE YOU DO NOT NEED.
Dear Ward Member,
I would like to bring to your attention that at present due to the improving weather we are experience a rise in artifice burglaries. On this occasion unknown males are attending the home address of our venerable elderly victims who mostly live on their own stating that they are doing work at the neighbouring property and require access to their garden in order to carry out the works, or the unknown males are persuading them that they had an appointment for that day to attend and carry out works in the garden. If access is granted whilst one of the males is showing the resident what work they will be doing the other males they are in company with are entering the property and stealing any cash and jewellery they can find.
Can I please ask that you remain extra vigilant and should you know any elderly or vulnerable people could you please look out for them so that we can try to ensure that nobody else falls for this scam.
Lastly could I please ask that should you receive any leaflets regarding tree surgery through your door could you please forward them to myself so that I can look into the company to ensure that they are legitimate.
Many Thanks in advance for your assistance. Should you have any questions then please do not hesitate in contacting me.
