Parkwatch was conceived as a way in which Police could seek the assistance of the local community and other interested parties in keeping Chiswick House Grounds safe for all those who enjoy using it. Initially designed to recruit dog walkers, the watch now includes representatives from local residents groups, Chiswick Community School, English Heritage, C I P and other park users.

The group meets regularly to raise concerns and also to give feedback on activity within the Park area. Dog walkers in particular are asked to inform the local Beat Officer, PC John Lane, of any criminal activity or loutish behaviour.

He is available on a dedicated Parkwatch phone number 07817 408554 although it should be pointed out that it will only be switched on when he is on duty and assigned to general patrol duties.

It should also be remembered that if an immediate response is required for a crime in progress 999 should still be used.
