Welcome to Police Liaison Group website for St. Margarets and North Twickenham.

This site is dedicated to our local Police Liaison Group (PLG) for St Margarets and North Twickenham ward. This page contains the latest crime figures for the ward, dates for PLG meetings and other meetings.

Reporting a Crime

In An Emergency

Dial 999 for emergencies or where a crime is actually going on.

If you have a hearing or speech impairment, use the textphone service 18000 or text on 999 if you have pre-registered with the emergencySMS service.

To register for textphone or emergency SMS service here for instructions.

Remember to ensure you are safe to call. If not, get to a safe position then make the call.

When It Is Not An Emergency

Dial 101: to report something that has happened or a suspicious circumstance not amounting to an emergency.

Report online

To report online rather than use 101 use the Metropolitan Police Website - Go to "https://www.met.police.uk"

Note reports can also be made here about stolen vehicles, missing persons, lost and found, anti-social behaviour and road traffic incidents.

Other Ways To Contact Our local Police

Please always report any crime to the police. They have advised that all reported crime will be added to their statistics and will reflect on their level of policing of our neighbourhood. If they do not know crime is occuring they cannot be expected to allocate resources to us.

Safer Neighbourhood Team

There are three ways to engage with our Safer Neighbourhood Team.

You can view their website for local crime statistics, latest information and meetings they may be hosting here.

You can email them at StMargarets&northtwickenham@met.police.uk. The mail has an autoresponder so you should get confirmation it has been received. It is not manned 24/7 so please do not expect an immediate human response and do not use this for emergencies.

You can call them using this number: 02071759465

The telephone number will reach them. If they are not on duty it will be picked up when they come on. If they are on duty they will receive a message that a call has bene made and pick up any message you leave there.

Neither the email address or local number should be used for emergencies. Those calls should always be to 999 or 101/online to report a crime. Please use this email or number to raise local crime issues and concerns.


You can also use the Crimestoppers website and number (0800 555 111) which is anonymous should you not wish to give your name.

Reporting Scams and Phishing

If you spot a scam or have been scammed, please report it and get help. Contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at actionfraud.police.uk.

About the PLG

A key part of the Mayor’s Police and Crime Plan is improving transparency, accountability and trust in policing. To achieve this, the Police have committed to work with communities via various Community Engagement mechanisms.

Locally this involves Richmond’s Safer Neighbourhood Board (SNB) and, at ward level, Police Liaison Groups. These are meetings where the residents, neighbourhood watches, local police (Safer Neighbourhood Team) and councillors meet to discuss issues and what is going on in the area.

Richmond is unique in London in that we have Police Liaison Groups, organised by residents via the Safer Neighbourhood board, rather than ward panels organised by the police in other boroughs.

If you want to join or start a local neighbourhood watch, do let us know by mailing here . The PLG chair will then be in touch to help.

You can download a brief guide to the PLG here.

Contact the PLG

Should you wish to contact the PLG to raise a question for the next meeting or something more urgent, please email stmargaretsandnorthtwickenham.plgrichmond.org.

Please note this is not a way to report a crime.

Next meetings and previous minutes

The next PLG meetings for this ward will be held in January 2024 online only and March 2024 in the Winchester Hall, by the Turk's Head, St Margarets where we hope to have the local Police Schools officer present. Exact dates for both meetings yet to be confirmed.

Minutes of the October 2023 meeting can be found here.

The next Safer Neighbourhood Board meeting for all of Richmond and Twickenham will be held in York House, Twickenham on Tuesday January 23rd 2024 6:45pm for a 7:00pm start.

Minutes of the October 2023 meeting can be found here.
