Answered By: 
The Mayor

The anti-burglary initiative in the Colindale / Burnt Oak area has seen a reduction in residential burglary offences since April 2014. The initiative was put in place in April and is part of the boroughs ongoing fight against residential burglaries across the borough. At present burglary (total) is down 16.3 % borough wide.

Part of the initiative within the area was the offer of police painting anti-climb paint within certain roads. This offer received a significant take up from residents. Barnet have also made use of crime prevention signage to warn of issues whilst putting out further prevention advice via social media and leaflets.
