Have your say on the future of policing in Newham.

Representatives from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (Mopac) and the Metropolitan Police Service are holding consultations at Forest Gate police station.

They will offer the chance to discus the future of the borough’s front offices, how the public contacts the police and the reporting of crime.

The drop-in consultations will take place on Monday, September 11 at 12.30pm and 6.30pm.

The consultations come as part of Mopac’s plans to cut the number of front counters in each London borough down to just one, as part of a drive to save £400 million over the next four years.

In Newham, this would be at Forest Gate, meaning the Plaistow and Stratford counters would close to the public.

If you are unable to attend the consultation but would like to have your say, visit for more information on how to get involved.
