PRARA is a registered Neighbourhood Watch group so, as a member of PRARA, you are automatically a member of Neighbourhood Watch.
Please tell your street representative or our Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators about any problems, incidents or trouble. Their names and numbers can be found on the Contact Us page.
However, for immediate action please contact your Safer Neighbourhood Team, the general police non-emergency number (101) or, if a crime is seen or suspected or for any other emergency - call 999 immediately.
Safer Neighbourhoods Teams - SNTs - are dedicated to your community and are additional to other policing teams and units in London. Their aim is to listen and talk to you, and find out what affects your daily life and feelings of security. These might be issues such as anti-social behaviour, graffiti, noisy neighbourhoods, yobs or vandalism. Then, they work in partnership with you and other agencies to find a lasting solution.
The small number of officers in each team means that they are not always available but they are supported by 24-hour rapid response units.
The PRARA area is covered by two different Safer Neighbourhood Teams. The boundary is in the middle of Clancarty Road. Houses and streets to the north are covered by the Parsons Green and Walham Team. Houses and streets to the south are covered by the Sands End Team. The teams work closely together and have the same Sergeant.
If we have your e-mail address we will send you security alerts as they arise and forward periodic updates from the SNTs.
Each team has its own web page where you can find information about the teams, their contact details, news on what they are doing and dates for the monthly surgeries that both teams hold, usually in a local coffee shop.

Sands End also has a new mobile number: 0788 166 1830 and it is recommended that you call that number first but please note that it is not a 24 hour number. If you leave a message you will receive a response as soon as a member of the team is available.

Ward update from Sands End SNT:
The latest (February 2015) crime trends, which are creeping into Sands End from Kensington and Chelsea, are thefts from motor vehicles which use keyless security. Criminals use a remote override which copies the key system onto a blank key which then allows them access to the vehicle.
