To date there is NO indication whatsoever of what Brent's new SNTs would look like? What will be typical number of officers and composition of dedicated teams for Brent's wards? How will the allocation of Sergeants be made? Will the sergeants and SNTs be exclusively dedicated to their respective wards? When will the implementation of the new SNTs will take place and when will the completion take place?

Under the Local Policing Model (LPM) every ward in Brent will have two PCSOs (one of which will be named and dedicated to the ward), one dedicated named PC and one named sergeant - with the exception of Kenton and Queensbury wards, which will share a sergeant.

In addition to the dedicated PC, each ward team will have 4 to 7 further PCs. The additional PCs and PCSO's will be deployable throughout the Neighbourhood area, which is a cluster of 6-8 wards.

Brent's current structure of three Neighbourhood clusters, and existing Neighbourhood bases, will be retained. Brent is currently planning for a 'go- live' date for LPM on 16th September 2013.
