Tonight I did my after-work get together in the Pump in Kitts’ Green; what was reassuring is local residents reporting far fewer problems with gangs and drugs, and many more saying they saw their neighbourhood police team out and about and knew how to get hold of them. This is a big change over the last year an half. We prioritised three sets of problems tonight; pressing for stronger security on local buses; action to get more cameras in place and better street-lighting; and more work to help every resident know not only their local officers, but how to get hold of them, and what was happening about crime – and prosecutions – in the streets where they live. Thanks to all who came.
