Save Lambeth Police Stations - Put people first
This petition had 482 supporters
The Labour Mayor, supported by the Labour councillors in Lambeth, has decided to cut police stations and police bases across Lambeth.
We are extremely concerned by the Mayor's plans. We believe visible community-based policing is vital to tackling crime, and provides reassurance and support to residents and victims of crime, especially at a time when London has seen a rise in serious violence and terrorist attacks.
Brixton station would remain as the only publicly accessible station to report crimes in the borough. The following stations and bases would close:
Loughborough Junction (Police Office/ Box)
Cobalt Square (Office)
Clement Avenue (Safer Neighbourhood base)
Coldharbour Lane (Safer Neighbourhood base)
Norwood Road (Safer Neighbourhood base)
Cavendish Road (Police Station/ Annex, no public access)
In 2013, Mr Khan asserted that changes to the structure of policing in London were decided by the Mayor, and criticised changes made by Boris Johnson. Now, as Mayor, Sadiq Khan pretends that the decision to close police stations and police buildings is nothing to do with him. Meanwhile Labour councillors in Lambeth have done nothing to lobby the Mayor to reverse his decision.
We call on the Mayor of London and the Labour elite in Lambeth to reconsider their cuts to the police service and keep our police contact points open.
