Have your say on policing in Merton
By adam_leone | Monday, January 07, 2013, 15:22
From today people are being asked about what they think about policing in Merton in a bid to put together a "crime reduction strategy" across London.
It's after Boris Johnson, The Mayor of London became Police and Crime Commissioner in May of last year.
The plan is expected to last for the next four years and explains what the Metropolitan Police Service and other agencies should be doing to tackle crime in the capital.
The point of putting this plan together is to improve crime prevention in neighbourhoods as well as holding the police to account for cutting crime and boosting public confidence.
Another aim is to ensure other agencies work better to deliver effective justice, better service for victims and improved resettlement to cut re-offending.
The consultation runs from 7 January 2013 – 4 March 2013.
The Merton borough consultation event is being held on 26 February 2013 at 6pm at the Council Chamber, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, SM4 5DX.
For your information the public and other stakeholders can pre-register for events from Friday 21 December 2012 at www.london.gov.uk and we will be keeping Londoners updated during the whole consultation period.
From today you can also take part in the consultation by viewing the draft plan online and completing a questionnaire at www.london.gov.uk , by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by speaking to a MOPAC colleague.
