Greenhalgh fronts police public meeting, Surrey Street, Nov 4

Police crime genericThe Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) and the Metropolitan Police Service will be visiting Croydon on November 4 to talk about the progress made against the Police and Crime Plan and hear local people’s views on policing in the capital.

Stephen Greenhalgh, Boris Johnson’s deputy mayor for policing and crime, Assistant Commissioner Helen King and borough commanders will be at Croydon Conference Centre on Surrey Street for the event.

Doors open at 6pm, the event starts at 6.30pm.

According to Acting Sergeant Daniel Penfold, of the Fairfield ward neighbourhood policing team, “Progress has been made over the last year with crime in London now falling faster than the rest of the country – down by 6 per cent in 2013-2014.

“However, challenges remain and it is right to not only showcase local success stories but to continue the conversation with Londoners where further changes need to be made.”
