Question

Does your plan to close Southgate Police Station (which currently offers front counter provision for 60 hours per week) and replace it with 4 hours per week at the nearby Asda supermarket fulfil your promise that any replacement would be of equivalent or better quality, and be for at least the same number of hours? Will you please reconsider this proposition?

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) are in the process of developing the strategy to improve public access to the police. Once complete it will be put before the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime for approval.

The strategy, once approved will support the Police and Crime Plan.

No decisions on public access will be made until the strategy is approved by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime.
