Answered By: 
The Mayor

The membership and functions of the Safer Neighbourhood Boards mean they will provide the ideal forum to monitor community reaction to the implementation of the Local Policing Model (LPM).

Ward panels will be the bedrock of police and community engagement in a pyramid structure with Safer Neighbourhood Boards at the top. The views of the ward panels will be escalated to the boards through the neighbourhood representatives.

The boards will include members representing a diverse range of community groups and the duty to monitor police performance, local confidence and complaints will capture how well the community thinks the LPM is working.

The implementation of the LPM will also be monitored by survey of: • performance information relating to public confidence in the police; • satisfaction levels with policing services; • visibility of the police; and • whether the public can rely on the police being there when needed.
