As you may be aware, Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, became Police and Crime Commissioner for the capital in May 2012.
A key part of the Mayor’s role is to produce a Police and Crime Plan, which sets out the crime reduction strategy for London for the next four years, and explains what the Metropolitan Police Service and other agencies should be doing to tackle crime in the capital.
From 7 January 2013, MOPAC will be consulting with anyone who lives, travels or works in London. The final Police and Crime Plan will be published by April 2013.
With your help, we want to produce a plan that will:
– Improve crime prevention in neighbourhoods;
– Hold the police to account for cutting crime and boosting public confidence, whilst giving Londoners better value for money;
– Ensure other agencies work better to deliver effective justice, better service for victims and improved resettlement to cut re-offending.
The consultation runs from 7 January 2013 – 4 March 2013, and we are hosting town hall meetings in every London borough throughout January and February. The Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Stephen Greenhalgh, and senior Metropolitan Police officers will be sharing a platform at each event to answer questions and discuss the issues.
The Bromley borough event is being held on 28 January 2013 at 8pm at the Great Hall, Bromley Civic Centre, Stockwell Close, Bromley, Kent BR1 3UH.
The public and other stakeholders can pre-register for events from at www.london.gov.uk.
From 7 January you can also take part in the consultation by viewing the draft plan online and completing a questionnaire at www.london.gov.uk , by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by speaking to a MOPAC colleague.
