There are reports of huge spike in hate crimes / racist incidents following atrocities in London. Islamophobic hate incidents too have been on the increase. What progress have the Met Police and other agencies made in tackling and reducing these crimes and reassuring local community and religious organisations as a way of support?
Are you concerned about the impact of Brexit on London's security, for example in regard to the MPS being able to access the critical data it needs to protect London from terrorist threats as links with the EU are loosened?
How many officers at what ranks have been redeployed from the war crimes unit; is it intended that this should be a short term closure of the unit and if so for how long; and if it is intended to be permanent how will the Met investigate alleged war criminals, especially historic cases which require specialist expertise and knowledge?
I am getting reports from Camden residents and ward panels that the Pathfinder (Camden & Islington) Borough has resulted in a deterioration of services provided by the MPS, including in particular the poor standard of investigations into crime allegations. What is being done to correct this?
Your response being:
'Officers are drafting a response which will be send shortly.'
