Crime Safety


Putney’s nightlife is getting more and more popular with great new bars popping up all over town. Putney’s thriving night-time economy needs to be carefully managed through strategic planning and best practice.

Positively Putney is managing the Pubwatch scheme with quarterly meetings for all the businesses in the night-time economy. The meetings are attended by the Police Licensing Sergeant, the Football Public Disorder Officer and the local PC ward officers. The meeting allows for the discussion and dissemination of intelligence to assist tackling anti-social behaviour and other local issues.

The meetings are held quarterly and the next meeting will be in January 2020. Check back for the confirmed date. For more information and minutes of previous meetings, email or just come along.


Come along and hear about the recent crime spike and discuss how, together, we can reduce crime levels. All BID businesses are welcome to attend and you will be able to discuss any crime or anti-social behaviour related issues.

We launched Businesswatch with the Thamesfield Safer Neighbourhood and Wandsworth Council Community Safety team in June 2018. The next meeting date is to be agreed.  

We offer all businesses training at a variety of crime reducing workshops. For more information visit
