SOS #SaveOurStations

This petition had 949 supporters

We are extremely concerned about the plans to close eight police stations in Lambeth.

Brixton station would remain as the only publicly accessible station to report crimes in the borough. The following stations would close:

  • Kennington
  • Streatham
  • Loughborough Junction
  • Cobalt Square
  • Clement Avenue
  • Coldharbour Lane
  • Norwood Road
  • Cavendish Road

The Government has made huge cuts to the police, with even deeper cuts on the way. 

Between 2010 and 2020, £1 billion will have been cut from the London Met police budget. 

We believe visible community-based policing is vital to tackling crime and providing reassurance to all residents, especially at a time when London has seen a rise in serious violence and terrorist attacks.

We call on the Government to reconsider their cuts to our police service and work with the Mayor of London and local authorities to keep our police stations open.
