The Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (Mopac) and the Metropolitan Police Service are visiting Wandsworth next week to talk about the progress made in implementing London’s Police and Crime Plan and to listen to local peoples' views on policing in the capital.
Stephen Greenhalgh, Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Assistant Commissioner Helen King and senior local officers will be at the Battersea Arts Centre on Lavender Hill on Wednesday, September 10. Doors open at 6pm.
They will be joined by Cllr Jonathan Cook, Deputy Leader of Wandsworth Council and Chair of the Wandsworth Safer Neighbourhoods Board.
The Police and Crime Plan was published in March 2013 and its targets included:
• Reducing key neighbourhood crimes
• Boosting public confidence in the police by 20 per cent
• Cutting costs to deliver £500m of savings.
A Mocap spokesman said: “Progress has been made over the last year with crime in London now falling faster than the rest of the country - down by six per cent in 2013/14. However, challenges remain and it is right to not only showcase local success stories but to continue the conversation with Londoners about where further changes need to be made.”
