Answer for Safer Neighbourhood Boards

Answer for Safer Neighbourhood Boards

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My manifesto highlighted the roles and powers of Safer Neighbourhood Boards. They include establishing policing priorities in boroughs and monitoring crime performance and community confidence. They will monitor complaints, work with independent custody visitors and play a significant role in community payback. It is for local partners to determine what will work best at the local level and we are working with boroughs to assist them in deciding for themselves the model that best suits them.
