community safety and crime 30 April 2014

Everyone is invited to a dialogue about community safety and crime in our borough on Thursday 30th April 6-8.30pm at Cambridge House, 1 Addington Square, SE5. See flyer.
This is arranged by the Southwark Safer Neighbourhood Board which is led by community representatives. The Board members are representatives of local community groups, the Council, police and other relevant public service bodies. They meet regularly to discuss policing, crime and community safety. They also have a small budget to support community projects that address key issues for the borough. This event is part of one such project. If you have any interest in these topics and/or the role of the community in contributing to the solutions, this would be a good meeting to go to.

Email from MPA:

Have Your Say on Policing in London

The Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) is consulting on London’s policing priorities for 2010/11. We are interested in your opinion.

Please take part in a short questionnaire to tell us your views. To complete a questionnaire click here. Questionnaires need to submitted by 1st December 2008. We look forward to hearing your views on policing in London.

Are the police focusing on areas that are important to you? The MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) policing priorities are reviewed every year. We hope the short online questionnaire will help you to tell us what you think:
* What are your top three priorities for policing in London?
* Why do you choose these priorities?
* What should the MPS be doing to tackle these priorities?

The current policing priorities can be found on the MPA website within the Policing London business plan. Please take part and have your say on policing in London. Thanks for taking part in the survey.
