Tri-borough Merger of Harrow, Brent, and Barnet Metropolitan Police Forces
Last year, petitions created by #Fixit Harrow Network, and a Harrow MP, secured a pledge by the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, to prevent the potential closure of South Harrow Police Station.
This year, we have another battle on our hands.
The Government has asked the Metropolitan Police Force to make £400 million pounds worth of cuts to services. Therefore, it has been proposed that Harrow Police Force merges into a single, tri-borough command unit along with Brent and Barnet.
The merging of the three boroughs will have far reaching implications for Harrow.
It will be harder for our local Council, the MP’s, and the NHS, to liase with the police, and it is in all probability that police resources will be drawn away from Harrow and diverted to Barnet, with its higher crime rate, and Brent, because of the complex policing needs surrounding Wembley Stadium.
We must preserve the quality, resources, and visibility of our local Police force in Harrow, and encourage the Government to ensure that we have the funding required to properly maintain these services.
With a rising feeling of vulnerability within our community, we need to know that we are protected by our local Police.
Please join me in signing and sharing my petition so we can put up a united front against the Tri-Borough Police Force Merger.
