by msecadm4921

In London, a partnership between businesses, police and Hammersmith and Fulham council is being hailed by the authorities for its efforts to reduce crime.

The Hammersmith and Fulham Partnership Against Crime (HAFPAC) is a charity set up to help the police and council prevent crime in the borough. Businesses, the council reports, club together to fund initiatives that support crime reduction in the borough.

Working with the police and council HAFPAC has launched projects including: a CCTV scheme in Hammersmith; mentoring projects for 10-18 year olds; a project to fit locks and bolts free of charge to the homes of elderly residents and a programme to target young offenders. Companies like Barclays Bank, BBC, EMI, Haymarket Publishing, L’Oreal and many others are involved. 

What they say

Philip Goodman from Haymarket Publishing says: "As a large employer in this area we accept that we have a responsibility to the local community. We have a similar responsibility to our staff to help ensure that they can come to work in a secure and pleasant environment and that’s why we support HAFPAC."
