Following the release of an efit image one week ago of the man who assaulted four women last month, there has been a good response from people in the community who are determined to help officers catch the culprit.
In addition, officers have been deployed in covert roles and patrols have been stepped up particularly during key times on Chiswick High Road and neighbouring streets.
Sgt Turtle said: "We have two aims in this, firstly we want to provide a visible reassurance to the people of Chiswick and make them feel safe going about their business.
"Secondly we want to be there to answer questions and also to gather any intelligence that people may want to pass on to us.
"We are also deploying officers in a covert role.
" We are hoping that nobody else gets assaulted, but we are out there at the key times to try and catch the culprit should he decide to come back.
"We also have a team of detectives whose full time role is investigating these offences and working to identify the suspect.
"We have had a really good response from the community to the media releases and the circulation of the 'efit'.
"It has given the investigation team some excellent leads to follow.
"We have found that the people in Chiswick are obviously concerned, but are determined to help us in catching this person and we are really appreciate their input."
Residents in the area said people remain cautious when going out at night.
Donald Osborne, of Arlington Gardens, who has lived in Chiswick for the past 16 years and is secretary of the West Chiswick and Gunnersbury Society, said: “Most people are very cautious when they go out at night.
“Friends and neighbours are being cautious and not panicking about it.
“I have noticed extra officers around. We do not want women to be terrorised on the streets.”
Jonathan Knight, chairman of Grove Park Group, added: “There has been a heightened awareness, particularly by women, since the alert sent out by the police.
“The alert was sent as an email on December 2 to those people who have registered with Neighbourhood Link.
“Personally I have noticed more police patrol cars around Grove Park in the last week."
Police have issued advice to residents based on the key points of the Suzy Lamplugh Trust:
Try and plan the route home, where possible, stay in well lit areas and be aware of your surroundings.
When a person has headphones on or is on the phone, they can often become distracted, so be mindful and pay attention to what is happening around you.
If in any doubt or you fell threatened, call the police. We would much rather come to a false alarm than have a person be shy of calling when they may be at risk.
If you think you have seen the suspect call 999.
Alternatively if you have any information about who it might be call 101, the incident room on 020 8247 6650, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
