Belgravia cop shop counter campaign launched

Vital service to be shuttered by Mayor's Office

06 October, 2017 — By Chloe Livadeas

A CAMPAIGN has been launched to save the front counter at Belgravia police station.

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, and the Metropolitan Police Service Public Access and Engagement Strategy, has announced plans to close the public service. Tonight (Friday), at 5.30pm, is the final date for responses to its consultation.

Churchill Labour councillors, Shamim Talukder and Jason Williams, have written to Sophie Linden, London’s deputy mayor for policing and crime, calling for the retention of the front-counter service.

Cllr Williams said: “Closing the service in Belgravia and relying on Charing Cross police station will mean the already busy services there will be put under greater pressure and mean there is less time to deal with queries from the public.”

To respond to the consultation, email consultation@mopac. london.gov.uk
