Answer for Safer Neighbourhoods

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police informs me that by May 2005 six of the eight Safer Neighbourhood teams in Westminster will be located in the north of the borough.I would like to see every neighbourhood in London have its own dedicated ringfenced Safer Neighbourhood. 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.
