Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Brent Safer Neighbourhood Board’s first meeting was on the 23 April. The SNB has met on three occasions in April, July and September. The next meeting is taking place in December and the Board hopes to hold its first public meeting in early 2015.


In the first six months of its development, members have focused on familiarising themselves with the aims and objectives of Safer Neighbourhood Boards, as well as widening membership. At its meeting in September, the Board elected an interim Chair and interim Vice Chair. Membership includes representatives from Brent Youth Parliament, Brent Connects, Victim Support, Safer Neighbourhood Panels, Victim Support and Neighbourhood Watch. Representatives also attend in a reporting or advisory capacity from MOPAC, local police, Brent Independent Advisory Groups, Brent Independent Custody Visitors Panel and Brent Stop and Search Monitoring Group.
