Park Langley Residents' Association

To promote and protect the interests of the residents of Park Langley

Neighbourhood Watch has become a sub committee of the Residents' Association, providing input to the committee at its monthly meetings. It also meets on its own to discuss matters and initiatives relating to the Park Langley area.
Dear All,
Below is the latest Shortlands Ward local Police crime update and advice from our PCSO Adam Charles (see below).
Attached is Bromley Trading Standards Alert 3.14 (about "courier fraud" - scammers tricks to get hold of your credit and debit cards).
Special Message: Received from our DWO PC Lea Hartley, a special message about joining a new Met Police initiative to create Police Encounter Panels. If you go onto Google and
search Police Encounters MPS this will provide you with  more in-depth information.


Police Encounter Panels

South Area Police are looking for members of the public to form a panel on each of the three boroughs – Sutton, Bromley and Croydon.  The panels are being created to give communities the

opportunity to feedback on policing encounters from their own neighbourhoods, by watching Body Worn Video (BWV) footage and offering their views on what went well or what the Met can improve.

If you are over 18 and live, work , in education or have other strong links to the boroughs and would like to get involved or simply hear more, please email the dedicated mailbox at

Kind regards

Shortlands Safer Neighbourhoods

From DWO PCSO Adam Charles:

Dear Residents

Hope you’re all well. 

Please find below the crime record for the period 1st Feb to 14th Feb 22. 

Very pleasing to see the crime rate for the first two weeks of February was so low.  Particularly pleasing to see no burglaries or thefts of motor vehicle. 

Earlier in the month the team recently carried out speed checks on St Mary’s Avenue.  Apart from two vehicles which were doing 38 mph and 41 mph all other vehicles were driving at sensible speeds. 


Today (Tuesday 15/02/22) myself & PC Chris Brown were on foot patrol when we found a young boy aged around 9 or 10 in Scotts Lane.  He seemed unsure where he was so we decided to take him back to Albermarle Road Police base for his own safety.  While we were doing this a call came out about a little boy who had gone missing in Bromley Town Centre matching the description of the boy we had found.  As a result we were able to call for a vehicle to return him to Bromley Town Centre where he was reunited with his father & older sister. 

Our next surgery is at Shortlands Library, Shortlands Road on Friday 25/02/22 from 3pm to 4pm.  Hope to see some of you there. 

Thanks as always for your help & support.


Kind Regards
