I have just followed the new @EalingMPS Twitter feed from the Ealing Borough Command of the Met. It is great that the police are reaching out but I do despair of the line “This site is staffed Mon-Fri 8-4. “ We really need 24/7 policing and only being told what is happening during office hours is really not on.
In a sensible world the borough commander, Chief Superintendent Andy Rowell, would have the Twitter app loaded on his mobile and would be able tell us what is happening if anything big does happen in the borough. Last August all we had from the Met was silence and it was up to the leader of the council to try to fill the void. Not good. Must do better.
