Lobby to save our po­lice base

Harefield Gazette - - YOUR SAY -

FUR­THER in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­gard­ing Uxbridge Po­lice Sta­tion clo­sure now re­veals that the de­ci­sion to close and sell the sta­tion was taken by the Mayor of Lon­don when the Gov­ern­ment ordered the Mayor to make vast cost sav­ings in the Po­lice Force.

The pro­posed ac­tion also in­volves main­tain­ing only one 24/7 con­tin­u­ously manned sta­tion in the whole of Hilling­don Bor­ough. As well as re­duc­ing po­lice num­bers. Any op­po­si­tion to these pro­pos­als must be made ur­gently.

The Mayor and our MPs will only be swayed by sound ar­gu­ments and strong pub­lic op­po­si­tion.

The Mayor can be con­tacted in the Mayor’s Of­fice for Polic­ing and Crime, City Hall, Queens Walk, More Lon­don, Lon­don SE1 2AA or email en­quiries@ mopac.lon­don. gov.uk. Your lo­cal MP can be reached at West­min­ster.

Ur­gent ac­tion is re­quired. Cost sav­ings can­not be jus­ti­fied if pub­lic se­cu­rity is jeop­ar­dised, par­tic­u­larly at a time when we seem to be ex­pe­ri­enc­ing an in­crease in crime at all lev­els. Frank Rhodes via email
