Mayor has broken his clear pledge on community policing

Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, has revealed that the Mayor of London’s pledge to restore community policing is being broken in numerous wards across the London boroughs.

Back in December 2017 Sadiq Khan boasted that he has successfully delivered on his promise to deliver at least two dedicated Police Constables and one dedicate Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) in every ward in London.

London hospitals have no excuse for not sharing violent crime data

Caroline Pidgeon has criticised the lack of participation by St George's hospital, and the Chelsea and Westminster NHS trust, in a scheme that aims to tackle hidden violence on the street by reporting anonymised information about violent injuries.

Caroline told the Evening Standard:

"This data-sharing scheme is highly effective. For a hospital, especially in London, to opt out of the scheme is truly horrific. As the scheme does not involve any breach of personal data there really is no excuse.”
