Street Pastors (Supplementary) [1]

Session date: 
June 19, 2013
Question By: 
Roger Evans
GLA Conservatives
Asked Of: 
The Mayor


Roger Evans (Deputy Chairman): I am pleased my colleague Tony Arbour asked this question because Street Pastors form a part of the infrastructure that is in place in Romford to keep people safe in the night time economy where they do not just reduce the incidence of antisocial behaviour and violence but they also provide care for people who have maybe drunk too much or missed the last bus home and are stuck in the town centre and would otherwise be vulnerable.

I am not going to ask you for money like my colleague but would it be possible for you at some point to visit us in Romford and see the measures that are being taken to improve safety in the high street and you could meet these marvellous people and thank them in person?
