The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) have made considerable progress in ensuring policing is more accessible to Londoners than ever before, not least through the roll out of Safer Neighbourhood Teams in every ward. The MPS has introduced victim focus desks in a number borough's, although is not on target to reach a full complement by April 2007. I will continue to work with the MPS to ensure these are up and running as soon as possible through a full and continuous recruitment programme.
