Next MOPAC Challenge

On 12 September at 10:00am, Stephen Greenhalgh, the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime will be chairing a MOPAC Challenge focussed on improving the victim experience of London’s criminal justice system. The meeting will be held in the Chamber at City Hall and will be webcast here.
Challenging the Met police, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Courts and Probation to improve services for victims of crime is one of MOPAC’s most important functions. At MOPAC Challenge these agencies will take questions from the Deputy Mayor and his team on how they will ensure that victims feel comfortable and confident, so that they can play a full part in seeing that justice is done.
Making the justice system work for victims is a key objective of MOPAC’s Police and Crime Plan, and will help us boost public confidence in the police by 20% and reduce delays in the criminal justice system by 20%.
A transcript of the last MOPAC Challenge meeting can be found here.
There will be no papers for this meeting. Any presentations used during the meeting and will be made available on the website.
