Have your say on proposed changes in community engagement in policing the borough.
The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater London) has proposed that every London borough should have a ‘Safer Neighbourhood Board’, “to establish local policing and crime priorities, monitor police performance and confidence, and fulfil a range of important, specific functions.”
These Boards will take over the funding provided by MOPAC for Community Police Engagement Groups (CPEGs) that currently undertake community-police engagement in each borough as well as establishing working relationships with other engagement and oversight structures such as Safer Neighbourhood Ward Panels (SNPs) and borough Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs).
In addition, MOPAC would like to see ‘area’ Safer Neighbourhood Panels created to cover clusters of wards at an intermediate level between the borough Safer Neighbourhood Board and the ward Safer Neighbourhood Panels.
We want as many of you as possible to get involved and give views. Please complete the online survey to tell us your views on the proposals.
