How would you like to be involved in decisions about crime and policing in Lambeth? How do you think a local board looking after police community engagement should look? Who do you think should be on the board? Give us your views – but do it quickly, our Safer Neighbourhood Board consultation closes this Friday (16 May).

Main post content

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is changing the way community engagement about policing and crime takes place.

They want every London borough to set up a Safer Neighbourhood Board to carry out public engagement with the Metropolitan Police.

Their role will include setting local policing priorities, monitoring what’s happening to crime performance and community confidence in policing, looking at how victims of crime are being treated and whether they are they satisfied with the police response and overseeing key issues such as Stop and Search and the treatment of people in police custody.

You have until Friday to let us know what you think about a Safer Neighbourhood Board for Lambeth:

  • How it should look;
  • Who should be on it;
  • How it should work.

You have the chance to shape how the board will work with communities in Lambeth – visit our consultation page to take a look at our proposals in more detail and to complete the online survey.

The closing date for responses is Friday 16 May.
