Top police officers from the Met were grilled over issues in Redbridge including street-drinking, cyber crime and prostitution last night (Tuesday).
The deputy mayor for policing and crime Stephen Greenhalgh was at Redbridge Town Hall as part of the MOPAC roadshow, updating residents on the progress of the police and crime plan unveiled last March.
Mr Greenhalgh was joined by assistant commissioner for territorial policing Helen King, neighbourhoods adviser Steve O’Connell, Redbridge council leader Cllr Jas Athwal and borough commander Supt Sue Williams at the event.
The crowd heard despite success tackling crime in the borough, residents’ perception of the police was still a problem area.
“Here we have a really good reduction in crime, but our confidence is not good,” said Supt Williams.
