The introduction of local policing by Ken Livingstone, with a dedicated local team out and about in every neighbourhood , has been welcomed by residents throughout London. The teams have been a success and helped  create  safer neighbourhoods and reduce  crime.

Responsibility for policing in London lies with, the London Mayor . Police borough commanders are worried the massive cuts in public spending expected next year will have an impact on police numbers on the ground. We  will  post the latest news on this web site.

If you live between Elder Road, Crown Dale, Leigham Court Road, Knollys Road and Norwood Road (in Knights hill ward) your local team is the Knights Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team based at Gipsy Hill police station. Last weekend the police team met up with local ward councillors and Valerie Shawcross, our elected representative on the London Assembly. You can email Valerie about London and policing matters  at  Val@valshawcross.com.
