Have your say on policing changes in London

As we mentioned before Christmas, we have concerns about some of the proposed changes to policing in London and are opposed to any cuts that would put at risk the year on year fall in crime we've seen in Hackney. 

Hackney Labour has been highlighting this and the importance of ensuring police officer numbers remain the same and that police stations remain accessible to residents. 

The Draft Mayor of London's Police and Crime Plan has now been published and on 24th January at 6pm, there will be a consultation event on 24th January at 6pm at the Town Hall Assembly Rooms to discuss the plans. This is an important opportunity to feed in your views to the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).

We know that Safer Neighbourhood Teams in Hackney provide a strong local link with residents, and we want to ensure this is protected. 

The Police and Crime Plan also outlines plans to close Hackney Police Station, and reduce Shoreditch opening hours. Stoke Newington will remain open 24 hours.
