Police Commissioner’s Visit to Harrow

On the evening of Wednesday 11 January,over 160 residents from across Barnet, Brent and Harrow were able to meet the Commissioner, Bernard Hogan-Howe, and question him about policing on their boroughs.

The event was held at Harrow High School and was also attended by Commander Christine Jones, and local borough commanders Neil Seabridge, Matthew Gardner and Dal Babu.

Residents heard first hand from the Commissioner about his vision for policing in London. He then spent over an hour addressing questions from the public which ranged from closure of local police stations, Safer Neighbourhoods officer numbers, hate crime investigations and how the Olympics would affect policing in their boroughs.

The feedback from those attending the event has been very positive. People commented that the event was well worth attending and a good opportunity to find out what the police were doing in their borough. Those who were unable to ask their question were given a feedback form to complete with their details, so that we can get back to them.

The Commissioner said: “Meeting Londoners face-to-face is very important to me. The event was very well attended and gave me the chance to hear about what we are doing well and what areas of policing are concerning the community. I’m looking forward to continuing the events across the boroughs and making myself accessible to more of London’s residents.”

The Commissioner will be hosting further events across London in the coming months to meet and hear from members of the community.
