Question

I have been made aware of concerns regarding the suitability of Dulwich Library as a Contact Point with regards to its location, visibility, local awareness of it; and that ideally a Touchdown Point for police use, a Contact Point with a private meeting room, and Victim Support would be able to operate out of the same location. Are you willing to investigate an alternative Contact Point in Dulwich?

All contact points are being assessed as part of the evaluation into the operation of the new Local Policing Model.  The temporary Borough Commander in Southwark recently met with local councillors to discuss public access and police presence in the borough.  If the police and locally elected representatives agree that an alternative contact point in Dulwich is preferable then I am happy for that to be considered by MOPAC.
