Don't Leave Your Dogs Unattended Outside Shops
Good arrest of two drug dealers by Chiswick officers in Brentford tonight|
That's Sgt Dave Turtle's advice to shoppers

The build up to Christmas and New Year celebrations was a busy time for police and here in Chiswick, there was no exception. The recent events in Paris and elsewhere have certainly increased our awareness of potential terrorist attacks. The advice has been Be Alert but Not Alarmed. If you do see anything suspicious please do call 101.
We conducted a anti- begging operation before Christmas with 3 beggars arrested and others moved on following numerous complaints from the public. Giving to beggars can exacerbate the situation especially if they are addicted to drugs or are alcoholics as they will use the money collected to obtain drugs or alcohol. A number of shoplifters have also been arrested in this period and many do not live in this area. We strive to ensure that shopping in Chiswick is a happy and safe activity.
