Today the Ealing & Acton Gazette published a full page ad from the Metropolitan Police and Mayor of London promoting Safer Neighbourhoods. This is part of a wider campaign.
In Ealing we still only have 8 of 23 wards covered by these teams (see MPS site). It seems a little early to be be advertising these teams before they are all in place.
Furthermore both the ad in the Gazette and the radio ad show two policemen on the beat together. It seems that London’s streets are so dangerous that they cannot patrol alone.
