Police and Crime Plan (Consultations)

Motion detail

This Assembly notes that the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Stephen Greenhalgh, will be conducting Police and Crime Consultations across London in January and February 2013.

While it may now be too late to rectify the problem of Lambeth and Southwark residents only seeing the Police and Crime Plan on the day of their consultation meetings, steps can still be taken to improve the quality of the consultation for other groups across London. This Assembly therefore calls on the Mayor of London to review the amount of time the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime has allocated to engage with Londoners – just 1 hour per borough – to ensure that a robust and democratic consultation process takes place.
