Answered By: 
The Mayor

Safer Neighbourhoods is a multi-million pound programme that is dramatically improving the way that London is policed. Significant investment is being made into ongoing advertising and publicity of the programme and its successes.

For Safer Neighbourhoods teams to achieve and retain accountability to local residents, public awareness of their activities needs to be achieved and consequently requires appropriate investment.

Every Londoner deserves to know that there is a dedicated Safer Neighbourhood team in every ward in London.
