Question

Do you share my concern that the front desk services and Safer Neighbourhood Teams for Hampstead when you close the station could be moved to the Police Stations at West Hampstead or Kentish Town approximately 40 minutes walk from Hampstead Police Station so it would take a long time for Safer Neighbourhood Officers to arrive at the ward and for members of the public wanting to use a front desk service to go to another station which would not be adequate compensatory provision?

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Deputy Mayor for Policing has not been asked to consider any proposals on the future of Hampstead Police Station and any approval to dispose of the station would not be given until in line with my commitment an equivalent or better facility for public access has been identified.
