Susan Says: Harrow Police Meeting a Success

A public meeting held by Harrow Police at Harrow Civic Centre has been praised by the Leader of the Council’s Conservative Group. The meeting on 11th December was organised by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, and included a presentation on new anti-domestic violence measures as well as providing information on police numbers and performance. The meeting was rounded off with a question and answer session with senior officers fielding questions from the public.

Cllr. Hall said: “This was a well-organised, informative and professionally run meeting – and I’d really like to see it become a regular occurrence in Harrow. John Courquin’s chairing was top-notch, keeping business moving in a timely and efficient manner, and the presentation on domestic violence from Craig McKinlay was both interesting and packed full of information. Domestic violence is an important and prominent problem which affects too many people – in every avenue of our society – and I was very pleased indeed to see all the excellent work that is being done in Harrow to combat it.”

Cllr. Hall continued: “We also learned from the Borough Commander that police numbers in Harrow are increasing, which is excellent news. It also puts to rest any scaremongering Gareth Thomas MP and Navin Shah are prone to spouting.”

Cllr. Hall concluded: “Our police in Harrow do sterling work, and our borough remains one of the safest in London because of their efforts. It is right our police are scrutinised, and are open and transparent about their performance, and meetings like this provide an excellent opportunity for them to do this, and to engage with residents. So I sincerely hope this meeting is a sign of things to come.”
