Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) are in the process of developing the strategy to improve public access to the police.

As part of this process senior officers within the MPS and MOPAC are also meeting with Boroughs to discuss improvements to public access in their borough and identify opportunities for co-location.

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.
