A meeting on 20th September will discuss the Mayor of London's consultation on changes to the way that the public can access and engage with the police.

As a result of Government funding cuts, since 2010, the Met Police have had to find £600m of savings and must save a further £400m by 2020.

Mayor Sadiq Khan is determined to protect the front line from cuts, and he has published draft plans to: close costly and underused police front counters in London and provide better ways to contact the Met online.

Doing this would help to meet growing public demand to be able to access Met Police services from smartphones, tablets and computers, whilst saving £10million that could be spent instead on frontline policing.

The meeting is at 7pm on 20th September at the Dugdale Centre (Executive Suite).

(NB This consultation has been condemned as inadequate by various media sources - see in particular  www.consultationinstitute.org/worst-consultation-2017.)
