Police 1,000 meeting at Southwark Town Hall 16th July 2010

Southwark Police 1,000 Campaign - 16th July 2010

Today I joined local residents, Wayne Chance the Southwark Police Commander, our Greater London Assembly Member Val Shawcross, Cabinet Member for Community Safety Cllr John Friary and Simon Hughes MP to discuss the future of policing in our borough.

The Police's Ward Panel Chairs were also present, these are local people who help shape the police's priorities in their area. It was interesting to hear their views and their strong support for the Police's Safer Neighbourhood Teams. In 2002 we started a campaign to increase the numbers of Police in Southwark to 1,000, this was successful and it is important that we now defend these numbers for the people of Southwark.
