it was good to see the Partnership working so well in Rayners Lane this morning.Not only were the above brothels closed but the police had other successes which will be reported in due course.

The Crime Prevention presentation at the Zoroastrian Centre was most useful.PCSOs John Duggan and Lisa Donaghue gave many useful tips to help prevent crime among our vulnerable citizens,.Fire Prevention advice was given by John Doherty and much appreciated.Some local Neighbourhood Champions also attended and found it helpful.

In the foyer of the Zoroastrian Centre stalls displaying all sorts of valuable information for the public,from Harrow Council as well as Harrow Police and the Fire Brigade were set up.Members of public were actively engaging to avail themselves of what was on offer.The turn-out was really encouraging despite rain showers.

The Leader of Harrow Council,Cllr Susan Hall,Borough Commander,Chief Superintendent Simon Ovens and Fire Brigade Borough Commander for Harrow,Richard Claydon were all present and extremely busy with the "DAY OF ACTION" on Rayners Lane Ward.

All in all,the day was a good success and the public have gained much knowledge about preventing becoming victims of crime and also about reporting crime.It was well worth attending and seeing the team work which has helped clean our some of the crime in Rayners Lane today.
