MPA asks Londoners to 'Have your say on policing in London'

The MPA is The  launching the ‘Have Your Say’ consultation to find out Londoners’ policing priorities.

Kit Malthouse, Chairman of the MPA, said:

"Public consultation plays an important part in setting the annual policing priorities for London and we want to encourage more and more Londoners to join in.

“This annual consultation helps restore the vital link between our local communities and their police service. All organisations do best when they listen to the people they serve and the police are no different. 

“This year MPA staff will be working over the summer months to make sure communities have their say, by attending community events, Safer Neighbourhoods team’s surgeries, ‘have your say’ days and joining crime prevention buses to speak with people directly.

“We are also asking London’s business community to have their say in setting policing priorities with a specific questionnaire.”

By completing a short online questionnaire Londoners can tell the MPA what are the most important issues for them and what they believe the police should be focusing on. The questionnaire asks:

  • what are your top three priorities for policing in London?
  • why do you choose these priorities?
  • what should the MPS be doing to tackle these priorities?

The public questionnaire is available at:

The business questionnaire is available at:
