Council and Police chiefs to face the public

On Tuesday 8 February from 4pm-6pm senior officials of both the council and police will be in Wimbledon Piazza to ‘Face the people ‘. This event has been created so that the community can talk to the most senior council and police staff about what worries them and what they think they should be doing together to keep our community safe.

Chief executive Ged Curran and Merton Police Borough Commander Dick Wolfenden will be on hand to respond to any queries or suggestions that people may have on what they think about the safety of Merton. Issues around crime and disorder will be covered and the Borough Commander and Chief Executive will be supported by the local Safer Neighbourhood team and popular character PCSO Steve, the reassurance bus and community safety staff.

Merton Council chief executive Ged Curran said: “Merton is still one of the safest boroughs in London but we want to maintain this by listening to the concerns of the public. Face the People is opportunity to take questions and feedback from our residents.”

Merton Police borough commander Chief Superintendent Dick Wolfenden said “Listening to the concerns of Merton residents is a priority for the police. We have great local relationships with our residents and businesses. We want to develop these further, working in partnership with our visitors and communities, to make our borough an even safer place.’
