Neighbourhood Police

Safer Neighbourhoods

There are dedicated police officers for every London Neighbourhood as part of Safer Neighbourhood teams. Each ward has a dedicated Ward Officer and Police Community Support Officer. Other officers may join them, working flexibly across a larger neighbourhood area (in our case Junction, Hillrise, Tollington and St George's wards), the wider group led by a sergeant and an inspector.

The teams are designed to offer an accessible and more accountable police service and the Archway ward priorities for the teams can be checked at:

For non urgent / on-going issues like street drinking, aggressive begging, or suspicious activity, including drug dealing you can contact the teams at: 


Tel: 020 8721 2941


Tel: 020 8345 0559

For urgent issues call 999, for non-urgent issues call 

101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland - when it's less urgent than a 999 call.
