Answer for Lewisham Community Police Consultative Group

Answered By:

My understanding is that Lewisham Community Police Consultative Group no longer exists, holding its last meeting in March 2014.  I am therefore unable to comment further.

The primary borough based police engagement and accountability mechanisms are Safer Neighbourhood Boards (SNBs).  While membership of SNBs is the responsibility of those partners who make up the boards, and is not prescribed by MOPAC, I am assured that Shakeel Begg is not a member of Lewisham SNB.
