The Metropolitan Police Authority has launched a wide ranging public debate on the issue of how London should respond to the terrorist threat now facing the UK.
Metropolitan Police Authority chair Len Duvall said the debate “recognises the potential Londoners themselves have to contribute to the safety and security of the capital.”
As part of the debate a series of “community engagement events” will take place place to explore Londoners’ views and concerns.
These include a number of hearings with specially invited audiences, confidential discussions with students in the capital and consultations in each of the thirty two London Boroughs.
Duvall said the Authority wanted “to enable London’s communities to communicate their views and concerns to the police, which we believe will lead to better informed police decision making and greater public understanding of the complexities involved.”
