Caroline Pidgeon is urging the Metropolitan Police Service to drop its controversial use of Live Facial Recognition (LFR) technology, until a whole range of serious concerns about its use are fully addressed.
Caroline has written to the Deputy Mayor for Fire and Resilience, who is co-ordinating much of City Hall's COVID-19 response, asking several key questions on the support and protections being given to our brave healthcare workers in London at this time.
Clapping each week is a nice way for us to show our gratitude, but it is a token gesture. Practical and essential steps must be taken to protect our healthcare workers and indeed all of our key workers.
Specifically, Caroline asked:
Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police to ask for assurances that, among its other important priorities, the Met will keep a focus on addressing fiancial crimes and fraud.
Caroline has written to the Met Police Commissioner on the subject of potential police resources being used as part of the re-opening of household waste and recycling centres in some boroughs across London.
One option that has been suggested and is being considered is that police officers could be deployed to patrol household waste and recycling centres to support staff in ensuring residents act and queue appropriately and maintain a safe distance.
