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 which panels have undertaken such analysis in the London Borough of Croydon.

Neighbourhood panels themselves do not undertake such analysis. Any problems identified by local people are researched, analysed and the results given to the ward panel to decide on the priorities for the local area. Neighbourhood profiles are also created which analyse demographics and crime patterns on the areas to help those decisions. Once identified, priorities are further researched and analysed as part of a problem solving process.
