A message of reassurance to the communities of Hounslow in the aftermath of the recent terrorist attacks has been recorded by the borough commander.
Chief Superintendent Raj Kohli's message against hate crime comes days after the third terror attack on the country, in London Bridge.
It follows the other two senseless attacks which took place in Manchester in May and Westminster in March.
Mr Kohli says: "I know that people are feeling vulnerable, upset and concerned.
"I just want to reassure everybody that the Metropolitan Police Service will do everything in its power to stop future attacks and to arrest those people involved."
He goes on to say "one thing that is not acceptable will be a rise in hate crime against groups that people think are involved".
People in Muslim and Sikh communities are not targets and are "as much victims in this as you all are," Mr Kohli adds.
His message is strong and powerful to urge people not to get involved in hate crime and not to target Muslim and Sikh people and other groups.
With the holy month of Ramadan under way and people heading to local mosques, or those going to the Gurdwara or Mandir (temple) over the weekend, he urges them not to feel vulnerable.
Mr Kohli adds any group that requires a police presence can approach himself or Sergeant Dave Turtle, community engagement and faith officer.
His message concludes by informing people there will be a visible polie presence in the borough during what is a "difficult" and "challenging" time but says "we cannot let terrorists win by us not returning back to some sort of normality".
