Leader of Haringey Council voices police plan concerns

from LBH website:

Haringey Council Leader Claire Kober has sent an open letter to the Deputy Mayor of London highlighting her concerns about proposed reductions in local police services.

The letter to Stephen Greehalgh was distributed ahead of last night’s Mayor of London’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) consultation event, which was attended by more than 150 local residents anxious to learn more about the proposals.

Cllr Kober set out concerns about proposals to reduce police front counter services in Haringey – and called for 24-hour counter services in Hornsey and Tottenham to be protected.

She also emphasised the importance of police visibility in helping local residents and young people to feel safe, and expressed disappointment at the level of resources allocated to local neighbourhood policing.

If you couldn’t attend last night’s meeting and would like to feedback to MOPAC about your views on crime and local policing, you can complete the online survey (external link) until 6 March.

You can also help the council in planning their next community safety strategy by taking part in our community safety survey.
