Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response from the Mayor 09 September 2013

As announced in March, Harlesden Police Station (Craven Park) will not be closed. The current front counter will become a contact point. Contact points are locations for non-urgent face-to-face contact where the public can meet their local police at regular known times.

In addition to the contact point outlined above Harlesden Police Station will be a deployment base, housing Safer Neighbourhoods Teams, the Borough Tasking Team and Safer Transport Teams as well as providing a patrol base for Special Constables.
