The Metropolitan Police Service issued Practice Advice in September 2005 to provide "Guidance on Setting Up and Maintaining Neighbourhood Panels". It is noted in the guidance that the "panel should be made up of local people whose role is to assess the local concerns, identified through community engagement and analysis".

Please detail the nature of such analysis undertaken in the London Borough of Croydon.

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Any problems identified by local people in Croydon are researched, analysed and the results given to the ward panel to decide on the priorities. Neighbourhood profiles, an analysis of demographics and crime patterns, are also provided on the areas concerned in order to assist decision making. Once identified, priorities are researched further and analysed as part of a problem solving process.
