A report based on 12 months data June 2021 to June 2022 together with findings & recommendations has been provided to appropriate Corporation Members & Officers and discussions are ongoing – as an initial outcome a Task/Finish Joint Action Group has been formed and had its inaugural meeting in December. The Group consists of City of London Police Officers; Barbican Estate Management; other Corporation Officers; the Chair of the Barbican Residential Committee and myself. A date for the second meeting is awaited.

Please continue to report any anti-social behaviour you may witness occurring across the estate. Any crime, including phone, bag or laptop snatching should be reported directly to the City of London Police and not included here.

Please remember that the intention of the ASB Reporter is purely to gather evidence of anti-social behaviour. Therefore, if you witness an asb incident please use the website to record the event but if immediate action is also required then you should follow normal procedure such as calling the Police on 101 (or 999 but only if URGENT); Barbican Estate Office; City Noise Team etc…

If it is the City of London Police that you call, you should be provided with a reference/case number – please include this in the “action taken” section of the ASB Reporter.

David Bradshaw

Chair, Barbican Estate Security Committee
