Help Lambeth get back 100 police officers

100 policeCouncil leader, Cllr Lib Peck met with the Deputy Mayor for Policing at City Hall, Stephen Greenhalgh on Wednesday  13th March following an earlier meeting with the Mayor, Boris Johnson. See article in 5th March edition of South London Press.
Lambeth council is asking the Mayor of London to provide 100 more police officers for Lambeth to make our streets safer.
The Mayor of London is responsible for policing across London. According to the Mayor’s own figures the number of police officers in Lambeth has fallen by 20 per cent since 2010 meaning we lost 214 police officers in that time. That’s the biggest reduction of any London borough. Lambeth is asking for a fairer deal and more police for a borough which has high levels of crime and increasing levels of fear of crime (up 9 per cent last year). 100 more police officers would mean Lambeth being treated like other London boroughs and will bring us in line with the London average. That’s a fair deal.
The 100 extra police will:

  • Keep local policing teams
  • Break the cycle of gang violence
  • Make Lambeth safer for women
  • Reduce robbery and serious violent crime
  • Put police where they are needed most.

You can help by signing the council petition and passing it on to your friends and family.
