I was out patrolling this week on one of the Metropolitan Police bicycles. The bikes are not only a great way of getting around the borough but gave me the opportunity to stop and speak to members of the public to discuss the service we are providing.

Police cars are in constant use 24 hours a day 7 days a week and need to be maintained and cleaned to maximise their safe and effective use. I was extremely impressed to see Harrow Police Cadets, many of whom are in the middle of their exams, spending last weekend washing and cleaning the police vehicles. Harrow Police Cadets are from local schools including Harrow High, Nower Hill and St Dominic's College. Despite the cold and unseasonal weather, the cadets worked enthusiastically to ensure that our officers had a gleaming fleet of police cars. The challenge now, is for police officers, to ensure that these vehicles are maintained to their current high standards. I'd like to say a huge thank you to all the police cadets for their enthusiasm and dedication. I was particularly impressed with 6' 5" Ali Roman Jouyan from Harrow High School who managed to clean the top of the police van without using a ladder. Thank you also to PC Lou Everett, PC Jeff Barnbrook, PC Mike Penny and PC Sasha Herbert who helped out on the day.

The blog comes this week from Det Supt Neil Wilson - Deputy Borough Commander. I am writing the blog this week in Chief Superintendent Babu's absence, whilst he spends some well-deserved time off with his family over the holidays.

I was honoured to be asked to open the Stanmore Fete on Sunday 27 May and I am grateful for the kind invitation from Tony Raymond, Chairman of the Stanmore Society. I bumped into one of my former colleagues there, Inspector Mark Lynch his wife Karen and their two children who volunteer for St John's Church and do a great amount of work for the local community.
