Meet Bernard*: Your chance to quiz the Met’s new boss

If you’re free in a couple of weeks’ time and you’re interested in policing issues, then you’re in luck. New Metropolitan Police commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe is holding an event for residents of Greenwich, Lewisham and Southwark boroughs on 7 December….

“Residents of the three south-east boroughs will have the opportunity to hear Commissioner Hogan-Howe speak about his vision for London and share their thoughts and ideas with him.

Places for the event which will be held at Lewisham College, Lewisham Way, SE4 1UT are limited, so residents are encouraged to register their interest as soon as possible.”

I’m sure topics on the agenda will include the cuts to safer neighbourhood teams, many of which have lost their sergeants, and the aftermath of the summer’s riots in Woolwich, Lewisham and Peckham. More details from the Met Police website.
