Tulse Hill in Lambeth has not yet been scheduled to receive a Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, despite the pleas of local councillors and residents. When is this ward scheduled to benefit from the roll out of this programme as there is a definite need for more on the ground preventative policing in this area.

I would like to see every neighbourhood in London have its own dedicated ringfenced Safer Neighbourhood team. The allocation of Safer Neighbourhoods teams within boroughs is a decision that must be made locally by the borough commander in consultation with local people. It is not an issue that I can or should intervene in.
