I think that the Met may have some problems with the Advertising Standards Authority. In today’s Ealing & Acton Gazette there was an ad from Safer Ealing Partnership pointing to the Safer Neighbourhoods part of the Met Police website. There was also a full page Safer Neighbourhoods ad from the Met and the Mayor (part of a £300K campaign). Unfortunately the website shows 11 out of 23 wards without the promised teams of four. The Mayor and the Met have been quick to advertise these teams before they are in place (this is the 5th full page ad I have seen in the Gazette). They are not so quick to deliver the service. The Mayor is now taking 2.75 times as much from us compared to before he came to power. Shame he is not delivering the service promised. A commercial organisation would pretty quickly be told by the ASA that they should stop their adverts until the service was available as advertised.
