The Police are under a lot of pressure right now, not least in London. The pattern of crime is changing and of course, the terrorist risk has escalated. Police numbers across London have in fact remained relatively stable, as has the cash that the Met receives. However they continue to have to find efficiencies, and the Mayor /MOPAC are consulting on a new strategy around police stations, which in the modern world are rarely accessed by the public.
I recently met with Sophie Linden, London’s Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime. Please click below to read the letter I wrote to her regarding MOPAC.
