The new Local Policing Model (LPM) has not yet been rolled out. The roll out will take place in two tranches, each involving 16 boroughs spread across London. The first tranche is planned to be ready at the end of June, whilst the second will be ready by October.

Decisions about how the new teams will be clustered, and therefore how many officers and PCSOs will be attached to them, are being made by borough commanders.

The main improvements to local policing will include an extra 2600 officers in Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) who will have a stronger focus on crime prevention and investigation; the reduction of anti-social behaviour; firm enforcement; and even greater responsiveness to community concerns.
