The government is looking to Newham for help in combating crime and anti-social behaviour across the United Kingdom.

Trevor Kennett, the interim head of Newham LBC crime and anti-social behaviour service, has been called in as an expert advisor by not one, but two government departments.

The Cabinet Office and the Prime Minister's Delivery Unit have asked Mr Kennett to be an advisor on a government-commissioned priority review of anti-social behaviour. The review is expected to last three months.

Mr Kennett said: 'We have a reputation for leading from the front. Newham is willing to break new ground and so we know what works and what doesn't. Government officials will also be visiting the borough to find out how we deal with issues such as ASBOs, abandoned vehicles and fly-tipping.'

The government's respect task force has also invited Mr Kennett to speak and lead workshops at their nation-wide respect academies in June. The events taking place in venues from Newcastle to Plymouth are giving professionals such as social workers, health personnel and family support staff, a chance to learn from experts in their field.

Mr Kennett said: 'The academies are promoting new ways to help protect communities from fear and harassment and foster a culture of respect. It's a great honour to advise the government and shows how highly regarded Newham is in tackling crime and anti-social behaviour.'
