Question

I have been approached by some constituents who are concerned about the police response times with regards to burglaries, drug dealing and drug taking in Gerard Road. They have mentioned on only one occasion have the police turned up within the 12 minutes and would like to know if this is a wider problem of police not meeting their response time across boroughs in London? I am particularly concerned about this as we are already facing police cuts in the borough, following the changes to the LPM.
