Safer Neighbourhood Board

The Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Board (SNB) was established in April 2014 and replaced the former Community and Police Partnership.


The role of the Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Board is to bring together the police and communities to establish local policing and crime priorities, make sure the public is involved in community safety decisions, monitor police performance and confidence, and to fulfil a range of important specific functions.

It delivers a number of projects each year to encourage dialogue between the police and hard-to-reach or vulnerable groups.

Public meetings

Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Board holds public meetings to discuss all aspects of policing within the borough and acts as an umbrella body for the 17 ward Police Liaison Groups.

Members of the public are welcome to attend SNB meetings, which are held every quarter at York House. There are opportunities to ask questions of the speaker and police representatives about crime and policing issues.

Twickenham rail station is five minutes by walking from York House, which is also served by the 33, 110, 267, 281, 290, 490, H22, R68 and R70 bus routes.

Go Girl public safety project

Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Board has launched a public safety project aimed at women and girls, which aims to empower them and to feel more confident when they are out and about in public.

The idea is to teach women how not to 'freeze' when they feel they are in danger, so many report that 'no words will come out of their mouths, their legs stop working.' The Go Girl initiative raises awareness of what we can train the human body to do, age-old skills designed to build personal confidence. A few easy exercises help by-pass this 'freeze', so the body takes over automatically, the voice comes, and the legs move again.
