Answer for Hampstead police

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Hampstead Heath constabulary falls under jurisdiction of the City of London Corporation and has an excellent working relationship with Camden police.

There have previously been technical issues with airwave communication, however the Camden Senior Leadership team has met with Hamstead Heath constabulary and MPS technology experts to ensure these are resolved.

The Hampstead Heath Sergeant is fully aware of his local Safer Neighbourhood Team and contacts them regularly, deploying to calls allocated to them when no local officers are in the vicinity of the Heath.
