Policing in Westminster: an uncertain future

Westminster's Commander of Police has assured Karen that there will be no ‘major changes' to Safer Neighbourhood Police Teams, after several months in which the vision of the Met police service for SNTs has been unclear. Karen questioned plans to merge wards under a reduced number of sergeants, arguing that this would risk losing the unique local knowledge and leadership which has helped make Safer Neighbourhood Teams successful. However, new information indicating an overall loss of 28,000 staff from the police service could mean throwing everything back in the air.
