The Metropolitan Police Authority is asking Londoners to have
their say and help identify the capital's policing
priorities for 2012/13.
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
- what are your top three priorities for policing in
- why do you choose these priorities?
should the MPS be doing to tackle these 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 participate.
“This year MPA staff will be trying harder than ever over the
summer months to enable communities to have their say, attending
community events, Safer Neighbourhoods team’s surgeries, ‘have
your say’ days and joining in with 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.
“Participating in this annual consultation is a vital tool to
help 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 is no different.”
