London Councils works with the boroughs to help them build safer and stronger communities.
We aim to ensure that the interests of Londoners, and their councils, are fully recognised in the development of community safety policies, and in the allocation of funding.
Our policy team works on a range of issues including, policing accountability, violence against women and girls, anti-social behaviour, anti-violence and reducing re-offending.
The team also plays a key role in ensuring London is fully prepared for terrorist attacks or other major emergencies in London.
London Councils has launched a new report ‘Reducing Reoffending in London: Why local solutions will deliver’ looking at local government’s role in reducing reoffending in the capital.
The report calls for a greater role for councils in the Government’s reforms.
London Councils and the Metropolitan Police have been working with Chief Executives and senior police officers to negotiate a protocol setting out agreed expectations in relation to borough Commanders’ appointment and tenure.
