Phoenix's Kiera makes Shepherds Bush a safer place
Year 8 student, Kiera, from Phoenix Academy, supported her local Police Force and provided a great service to her local community through her participation in the Shepherds Bush Safer Neighbourhood Team.
Shepherds Bush Safer Neighbourhood Team has won the prestigious 'SNT of the Year' award. The team covers one of the busiest wards in the area, including Westfield Shopping Centre and BBC Television Centre.
Some of the work involved included checking the local greens and parks for weapons.
Councillor Greg Smith, Hammersmith & Fulham Council Cabinet Member for Residents Services, said: “This accolade means that Shepherds Bush is now the best policed town in London.
“It is a proven fact that beat bobbies beat crime and, despite the nationwide spending squeeze, we have found a way to improve our town centre squads.”
Well done, Kiera. We look forward to seeing more of this aspiring police constable in the future!
