Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime hold consultation in Harrow
The people of Harrow are being invited to have their say on the future of policing in the borough.
A public consultation meeting will take place at the Civic Centre in Station Road at 5.30pm today.
The meeting will be chaired by Stephen Greenhalgh, the deputy mayor for policing and crime.
During the event Mr Greenhalgh will set out the Mayor’s strategy for reducing crime in Harrow.
The meeting will form part of the consultation on the draft Police and Crime Plan and attendees will be given the opportunity to express their thoughts and concerns on the proposal.
Mr Greenhalgh said: "Policing in the capital is changing and we want to hear the views of Londoners.
“In these challenging economic times, tough decisions will have to be made but ultimately we want to boost public confidence in the police, cut crime, and drive down waste.
“To do this we need to get more officers out on the streets and be smarter about the how we use police buildings including police stations and custody suites.
"These changes will, I believe, give London the dynamic, flexible police force it needs and improve the way Londoners interact with the first public service.”
During an eight week period there will be a public consultation meeting in each of London’s boroughs.
