MOPAC Challenge - 25th March 2014
On Tuesday 25 March at 10.00am, the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime will be hosting a meeting of MOPAC Challenge to discuss how to improve the confidence that all of London’s communities have in the police. The Mayor wants to make the Met Police the world’s most effective, efficient, and even most loved force, and MOPAC have set them a target to increase confidence by 20% by 2016.
Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting, which will be held in the Chamber at City Hall and webcast live here.
More Londoners than ever before (68%) think that the Met are doing a good or excellent job, but confidence levels fluctuate significantly between London’s neighborhoods and groups. The criminal justice system is also one of the few public services where dissatisfaction actually increases as individuals go through the system. The Deputy Mayor will hear from the police and partners on what more can be done to focus on the drivers of public confidence and achieve our ambitious goals.
Key speakers at MOPAC Challenge will include Dr Ben Bradford, Lecturer in Criminology at Oxford University, representatives from the London Borough of Lewisham, the Met Police’s head of community engagement, and John Azah OBE, of the Met Police’s Independent Advisory Group on Race.
