Following new changes from the London Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) a Safer Neighbourhood Board is to be set up in every Borough by April 2014. Details can be found on MOPAC’s website here: http://www.london.gov.uk/priorities/policing-crime/mission-priorities/community-engagement
On 22 January 2014 Lewisham Council made their first appointment of an elected member to sit both on the Shadow Safer Neighbourhood Board and also to the Safer Neighbourhood Board when established.
Further information about how a Safer Neighbourhood Board for the borough of Lewisham was developed locally can be found within the meeting papers for the Lewisham Community Police Consultative Group. In particular the 4th February 2014 (a Shadow Safer Neighbourhood Board meeting) and 4th March 2014 (elections for the new Board). http://councilmeetings.lewisham.gov.uk/ieListMeetings.aspx?CommitteeId=280
