Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Safer Neighbourhoods Deployment Protocol stipulates that SNTs can only be abstracted in extreme circumstances.

The Protocol does endorse 'flexing' of SNT resources whereby staff can be deployed across ward boundaries within a borough to address a specific problem which is beyond the capability of a single ward team.

The flexible use of SN resources is intended to be a temporary intelligence-led measure, with the resourcing period lasting no longer than 4 weeks, reviewable after 2 weeks at the borough tasking process.
