Get Involved In Future Of Neighbourhood Policing

Met Police reviewing SNTs and need your input

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is currently carrying out a review of Safer Neighbourhoods Teams across London.

The purpose of the review is to find better ways of using current neighbourhood policing resources to meet the needs of the local community. It also aims to ensure that local police teams continue to deliver an effective and relevant service in the right place at the right times.

The review will focus on the locations of Safer Neighbourhoods teams, what they do and how they are structured. It will be carried out by gathering the thoughts and feedback of local partners, such as the local authority and members of the community.

The MPS is keen to point out that it remains committed to delivering effective neighbourhood policing that focuses on the safety of local people, and ensures a visible local policing presence in all our communities. It is also are committed to maintaining named officers in every neighbourhood in London, who are responsible for identifying and tackling local crime and anti-social behaviour.
