I don’t know how much “double hatting” is going on with these Safer Neighbourhood Teams but I wonder if they are what the Met professes them to be. There was a great photo of Sergeant Andy Storr in the Gazette this week. Apparently he is head of the knife amnesty campaign in Ealing. Whilst I accept that this might not be a fulltime job I note he is also SNT sergeant for Norwood Green.
If you go to the Ealing SNT page on the Met’s website 9 out of 23 wards appear not to have a sergeant.
Are we getting what we have paid for?
