London's West End is the gateway to all that is great in our capital city. Home to restaurants, bars, clubs, shops and rich heritage, Westminster welcomes over 30,000,000 visitors a year.
All this means that sadly, it is also an area which attracts certain types of crime, including petty theft, shoplifting, drug-related activity and alcohol related disorder. We are working hard with businesses to crack down on this illegal activity, whilst still preserving the unique character which has made the area so famous.
The Safer WestEnd Business Partnership is a joint initiative with the local business community, the Metropolitan Police Service, British Transport Police and Westminster City Council. We offer members the chance to help to reduce shoplifting, theft, alcohol related disorder and other anti-social behaviour which affects their business, customers and staff.
