For the last 2 years H&F Council have piloted a kind of zero-tolerance scheme in Shepherds Bush and Fulham. Mainly this involves targetting people who are drinking on the streets and other petty offences. This video, which comes from the Council's YouTube channel, features some of those statistics and some footage of much super strength lager being poured down drains!
Apparently we can expect an announcement in April about how the pilot schemes have gone. Have you noticed a difference? On reflection I think I probably have, there do seem to be fewer shouting winos on the Green that before. But then there is still house crime on our street where we live. What do you think?
