The level of public’s confidence in the borough’s police force is one of the lowest across the capital.
A little more than half – 56 per cent – of Redbridge’s residents expressed confidence in the police in a public attitude survey.
The figure is 10 per cent lower than the capital-wide figure, 66pc.
One target set for the borough’s force by Mayor’s office for police and crime (MOPAC) in 2011 was to increase overall satisfaction by 20pc from 56pc.
Det Supt Mandy Beacher, of Redbridge Police, said it was “common” for east London boroughs to register a lower level of public confidence.
