Question

In your draft Police and Crime Plan you have made a number of proposals surrounding front counter provision in London. I and Londoners understand that these proposals are currently under consultation. However, Londoners need some more detail in order to be able to respond appropriately to the consultation process. Therefore can you answer the following question in as much detail as possible:

Muswell Hill police station is proposed to close. What is the proposed alternative contact point in respect to this front counter?

I am committed to improving public access

Consultation on the draft Police and Crime Plan including proposals to improve public access are on-going and no final decisions have yet been made.

My proposals will improve public access, bringing the police closer to the public with creative solutions such as co-locating crime prevention desks and bureaus in places with a high number of visitors such as council buildings, libraries and other local public services as well as other local places that are frequently visited.

I will also be piloting providing front counter services in post offices which I expect to be in place by July 2013

All victims of crime who would like one will be guaranteed a personal visit at an agreed time and a location of their choice. Treating victims with dignity and respect will be at the heart of service provision, ensuring they receive the level of service they deserve and helping to increase confidence of victims especially the vulnerable ones.
