London residents are being asked to take part in a Metropolitan Police survey as part of the force’s review of Safer Neighbourhoods Teams.
The Met says the the online survey is part of a review “to find better ways of using current neighbourhood policing resources to meet the needs of the local community.”
The review comes against a backdrop Government cuts and fears that the Met and Mayor of London Boris Johnson will be unable to maintain police numbers. Appearing before the London Assembly last month, Mayor Johnson offered only a hope of being able to keep office numbers “at or around” current levels.
In a statement the force says feedback from the surfer as well as discussions of local partners, such as the local authority and members of the community, “will help plan any possible future changes.”
The statement insists that “no changes will be made without talking to local partners and community members.”
