If you wanted evidence that the localisation of policing is very effective, you will recall that you did a public meeting in Rotherhithe. In that area, following a local policing plan that was drawn up after that visit and the application of additional police resources and now some PCSOs, there has been a 25% reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour incidents reported.
One of the problems that I think we face is there are many areas where there are hotspots of crime and anti-social behaviour, which cross the boundaries. You mentioned Crystal Palace earlier on with five boroughs. We have places like Herne Hill where two boroughs meet. We have places like Elephant and Castle, Walworth and Camberwell. Do you think there is a role for managing local police initiatives, local police planning in a way that would provide a better service to those areas, which are on the borders?
