Residents are invited to attend the Safer Neighbourhood Board AGM on Saturday March 21.

Introduced by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), the Safer Neighbourhood Board was set up in 2014 by RBKC and the police 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 officers, 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 minutes from the last meeting are now available online now.

The Annual General Meeting will start with a formal report on the first year of the RBKC SNB by the chair Eman Yosry. There will also be presentations from the Council and Police, plus Stop & Search Community Monitoring Group and others. We have left ample time for a question and answer session.

At about 12.00pm, there will be refreshments and stalls will have been set up to represent the various interest groups on the board, such as Crime Prevention, OWL (the new Neighbourhood Watch system), Stop & Search Monitoring Group, Independent Custody Visitors, Victim Support, Business interests and Community representation.

This will give everyone an opportunity to learn more about the various groups, ask questions and discuss the work, maybe even learn enough to want to join.

WHEN: Saturday 21st March, 10.00am – 1.00pm
WHERE: Small Hall, Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, London W8 7NX
