Council and Police chiefs to Face the Public

Merton Council and the Police are joining forces again on Monday 15 November to bring together another ‘Face the People’ event aimed at listening to the views of people who live, work and visit the area and answer questions about all issues related to community safety.

As part of their statutory duty to speak to the public about these issues, Merton Council’s chief executive Ged Curran and Merton Police borough commander Dick Wolfenden will be on hand outside the Civic Centre in Morden inviting locals to come along and ask them their questions about community safety, crime and anti social behaviour,

They will start the events at 2pm on 15 November and will be available until 4pm. The local Safer Neighbourhood team and popular character PCSO Steve will also be on hand with the reassurance bus.

Merton Council chief executive Ged Curran said:” Although Merton is one of the safest boroughs in London we still take the safety of our residents very seriously and hence events like Face the People are important. By working in partnership with the police we hope we can take questions and feedback from our residents into account as we work together on their behalf.”

Merton Police borough commander chief superintendent Dick Wolfenden said “Working closely with the council and other partners is crucial in helping us to offer the best service to Merton’s residents and I am looking forward to meeting members of the public to hear their views and questions.”

Further events will follow throughout the coming six months so look out for more information.
