Greenwich Council has issued 200 alarms to women and vulnerable residents in the Kidbrooke area.
The devices are used to attract attention in cases of attack and help disorientate the attacker. They can be attached to keys, bags or be held in the hand.
A spokesperson said: “The team will continue to do this over the coming weeks, and further alarms will be purchased to ensure we can provide these to as many residents as we can.”
Karren added to The Sun: “The answer is not to issue women with personal attack alarms, as Greenwich Council has done to 200 local women.
