The Mayor


In September, the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Chinese in Britain produced a report on the Chinese Community and Policing. Since then I have been trying to arrange a meeting for the community with senior officers at the Metropolitan Police to discuss the report's findings and recommendations, but with no success. Will you emphasize to the Commissioner the importance of engaging with this sizeable community in London, and will you facilitate such a meeting to take place?

The Commissioner and Commander Newcomb met with Chinese community representatives in August 2013 and there have been subsequent meetings with Cdr Newcomb to discuss the report. Cdr Newcomb is happy to meet with you and/or community representatives as required.
