Officers from Hammersmith & Fulham’s Law Enforcement Team (LET) completed a 24-hour operation on the Clem Attlee Estate this week.
During the visit, LET officers spoke to residents to discuss issues of anti-social behaviour in the Fulham area and how they can help. Officers also conducted weapon sweeps and visited local businesses, schools and parks.
The LET is working with residents across H&F to crack down on knife and drug crime, as well as anti-social behaviour and fly tipping.

The team was joined on the Clem Attlee Estate by H&F Leader Cllr Stephen Cowan, who said: “We’re determined to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, which is why the council has funded 72 Law Enforcement officers to make the area safer.
That’s part of our overall commitment to make Hammersmith & Fulham a no-go area for criminals. If you see the Law Enforcement Officers, say hello. They’re here to help.”
During the 24-hour operation, the LET officers also carried out:
- high visibility patrols of every block and the surrounding area, including the entire Clem Attlee Estate, neighbouring parks, North End Road and local schools such as Fulham Primary school and Normand Croft community school
- door knocking engagement at residents’ homes, including Tom Williams House, Jim Griffiths House, Chuter Ede House, Ellen Wilkinson House, Manny Shinwell House, Nye Bevan House and Margaret Herbison House
- tagging and removal of abandoned bikes in and around the estate
- waste inspections, to follow up on fly-tip complaints in the area. Officers provided both residents and businesses on North End Road with waste advisory letters detailing their collection schedule, and educated them on proper waste disposal methods
- women's and girls' safety patrols, especially around local tube stations and other hotspots with high footfall.
A similar 24-hour operation will be carried out by our LET on the White City Estate on Wednesday 2 February.
