Introduced by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), the Safer Neighbourhood Board was set up in 2014 by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the police. Its purpose is to give local people and victims a greater voice in establishing local policing and crime priorities, as well as monitoring police performance and confidence.

The board includes local people, councillors, the Borough Commander and representatives such as Victim Support, Neighbourhood Watch, RBKC, Independent Custody Visiting Panel, and the Stop and Search Monitoring Group.

Through this strong community representation the Board’s goal is to achieve a safer and more peaceful community within Kensington and Chelsea.

The next Safer Neighbourhood Board meeting is on Monday 9 February 2015, 6.30pm-8.30pm in Committee Room 1, Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, W8 7NX).

Come to the meeting, ask questions and share your views on policing. We are interested in your concerns about crime and antisocial behaviour.
