London Crime Reduction Board Workshop



On 28 February, my Advisor for Health & Youth Opportunities, Pamela Chesters hosted a high level seminar at City Hall of around 60 senior leaders from children’s services, health, the police and probation services.


The event was organised at the behest of the convening agencies: the Association of London Directors of Children’s Services, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and the GLA by my Children and Young People’s Unit and sought joint solutions to improve intelligence sharing around work with troubled families where safeguarding and youth violence is an issue. The work forms a key element of the Anti-Violence Partnership – one of three main strands of the London Crime Reduction Board.


Presentations were made by Directors of Children’s Services and Borough Commanders in relation to local good practice on:

  • Overcoming IT challenges;

  • Sharing information across borough boundaries;

  • Building effective links with health and probation; and

  • Dealing with police notifications


Discussion focused around the need to build on the good practice that already exists with a view to converging on common standards across London whilst recognising the different roles and responsibilities of the range of partners involved.


Work going forward will be led by boroughs and their partners from the initial 10 boroughs who have agreed to participate.


Brent Community Conservation


On 2 March, I hosted the third in a programme of Community Conversations; a series of events designed to work directly with the communities most affected by serious youth violence.


The event took place in a community venue in Brent and was attended by local residents who had a chance to quiz my Deputy Mayor for Policing Kit Malthouse and myself, alongside a panel of local experts.


The evening was chaired by Robert Quaye, who chairs the Brent Independent Advisory Group. He was joined by a panel from the local area, including Jayne Banful, Youth Counsellor and Associate Pastor, Patrick Jacobs, Chair of Not Another Drop, and Kelly Oyebola, Director of Potential Mentoring. 


During the second half of the evening the audience took part in group workshops to discuss what is already going on in the community and the challenges it faces. I also took the opportunity to encourage men from the area to sign up to my Mentoring Programme, which aims to match black boys aged 10-16 at risk of offending with suitable mentors.

National Specials Weekend



On 11 February, I joined Special Constables on the beat in Bexley to see first hand the vital job they do keeping the capital safe.  I want to boost the number of specials by 6,667 in the run up to the 2012 Games.


My visit came ahead of National Specials Weekend which ran from 12-13 February and I called on more Londoners to give up some of their spare time to become a Special. 


Specials are unpaid police officers who volunteer at least 16 hours a month to work alongside regular police officers.  They come from all walks of life and have the same powers and responsibilities as regular police officers.


Support for women exiting prostitution


On 28 February, my Deputy Mayor for Policing, Kit Malthouse, visited an organisation called Trust based in Lambeth. Trust is a voluntary sector organisation offering a holistic package of care to women involved in street prostitution in South London to support exiting. Kit Malthouse also participated in a film funded by the Ministry of Justice to promote Trust's service model as this is an example of good practice and a model that we are encouraging across London.


Transport

Crucial London Overground rail link opens three months early



On 28 February, I opened a crucial rail link allowing passengers to move swiftly between north London, the City, Docklands and the south of the capital, three months ahead of schedule.


The 2.1km link between Highbury and Islington station (on London Overground’s Richmond to Stratford Line) and Dalston Junction (on London Overground’s East London Line) means passengers using Victoria Line Tube services or National Rail services stopping at Highbury and Islington can now use fast London Overground services to reach the north, east or south of the capital.


This will be particularly valuable for Londoners and visitors heading to Stratford for the London 2012 Games, providing another way for millions of passengers to reach the Olympic Park.


The former East London Tube line carried approximately 9m passengers every year (approx 30,000 per day) with 5 trains and had 9 stations.


The extended East London Line consists of nearly 15 miles (23 km) of track and calls at 23 stations (Highbury Islington to New Cross, Crystal Palace and West Croydon). It is predicted that by the end of this year, 33m people will use the line (approx 100,000 per day) and demand is forecast to increase to 40m in 2016 (approx 120,000 per day).
