Answer for MPS faith officers

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS is committed to engaging with all communities across London including faith communities. Each borough has reviewed its need for a dedicated faith officer in order to provide the most appropriate service.

Some boroughs identified the need for a dedicated faith officer and others incorporated the service within their neighbourhood teams.

There are currently 13 dedicated Faith Officer of which 2 are part time officers.

Barking & Dagenham

Bexley

Enfield

Greenwich

Haringey

Hillingdon

Hounslow

Kingston (part time)

Lewisham

Newham

Redbridge

Southwark (part time)

Waltham Forest

In those boroughs which do not have a dedicated faith officer, work is shared between the neighbourhood teams.
