Ex-Mayor Livingstone Policing

Met Safer Neighbourhoods teams come early

The Evening Standard today covered the announcement by the Mayor that all wards in London will have Safer Neighbourhoods teams in place by the end of April (see MPS and Mayor‘s press releases).

In Ealing we still only have 8 of 23 wards covered by these teams (see MPS site). It seems the Mayor is doing his best to bolster Labour’s chances in the forthcoming local elections by timing the in service date of these teams to precede the elections by a few days. It will be interesting to see how we will get from 8 to 23 teams in Ealing in only a few months.
