Police and Crime Plan

The Mayor recently launched his new Police and Crime Plan for London. Throughout October and November almost 8,000 of you took part in our policing and crime survey here on Talk London, providing important viewpoints on tackling crime in London and helping to shape the newly launched plan.

After 85% of you agreed that these were the right priorities to focus on, the main strands of the new Police and Crime cover: 

  • Neighbourhood policing including an extra dedicated constable in every London ward, with more in wards with the most serious problems. Priorities for these will be unique for each borough plus there’ll be more specialist firearms officers, and improved training on organised crime and cyber-crime.
  • Keeping children and young people safer with more dedicated officers working in London schools, a new Knife Crime Strategy and two new Child Houses to investigate child sexual exploitation and support victims in one place.
  • Tackling violence against women and girls – by refreshing the London Violence Against Women and Girl Strategy, improving training for officers on the handling of cases of sexual and domestic abuse, and sustaining investment in rape crisis and domestic violence services.
  • Opposing hatred, intolerance and extremism – by working with the Government to counter radicalisation and launching an online hate crime hub to respond to online hate crimes.
  • Improving the Criminal Justice Service – through new devolved powers, and by appointing a new Victims’ Commissioner to champion the interests of victims of crime.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on all of these areas as specific measures are introduced – and big thanks again to everyone who took part in the consultation last year.

NO POLICE OR LACK OF POLICE MEANS ....THE DEATH OF LAW & ORDER IN THE UK

Public roads should be filled with police, the public need them!

This useless government sends aid to North Korea pretending it is for educating the young yet clearly cares nothing for the safety of its own citizens...our money should not be going abroad if it is needed in protecting the UK!!!

An American here , left England in the 1620's. I am very concerned for you London. I am one of those rare Americans who love England. But get it together London. Do not disrespect our President by saying he is not welcome there, because my friends, you are saying 1/2 of the USA is not welcome there either. I would think that if President Trump were to come to London England at least the security of your people would be better off while he is there. He doesn't come alone you know, he brings many many guns with him that is there to protect him and anyone he is around. Pick your enemies Lord Mayor of London. Do not pick the country that helped save you in WWll as a foe, nor its president. We may not come again next time you get yourselves in trouble. As far as Law enforcement. Give your people and your Bobbies the right to carry arms, at least then they will have a fighting chance against anyone who wishes to do them harm. Oh yeah, one more thing, probably ought to make England what it once was. Get your greatness back. Its still there in your people......just not your London Mayor.
