Answer for MOPAC'S Public Consultation in Harrow

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am fully confident in MOPAC's public engagement abilities and its commitment to work with groups who truly represent their communities.

MOPAC has previously stated its intention to hold three themed meetings within Harrow to attract a wider and more representative audience. The first of these meetings has now been held, though attendance was disappointing, it provoked a relevant and meaningful discussion on the proposed new policing model between the police and the community. The next meeting is programmed for December and will consider violence against women and girls, one of my key MOPAC priority areas.
