The Lib-Dem mayoral candidate Brian Paddick has announced he would encourage Londoners to set up their own crime-fighting night patrols across London if he was elected mayor. Mr Paddick revealed his plans during a visit to a south London borough where residents have already started their own patrols after a string of muggings and burglaries.
With mugging and burglary rates on the rise across much of the capital, many believe crime-fighting measures such as night patrols and higher levels of security such as security grilles should be introduced by those looking to secure their homes and businesses.
Window grilles and security gates are an extremely effective method of securing your home from burglars and featured amongst the crime-fighting measures mentioned by Brian Paddick in a bid to lower burglary rates across London.
