Meet the police team!

Our residents told us they noticed a big difference when we lost our Met Police Team in 2016.

So this year, funded by residents, a dedicated 5-strong Police Team is again working with our ASB and Safeguarding Teams.

If you are experiencing, or witness, bad behaviour, contact Poplar HARCA on 0800 035 1991 or email

If it’s a crime call the Police on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
