QUESTIONS about changes to policing in the borough were put to the Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.
Last night (Wednesday) people gathered in the Middlesex Suite of Hillingdon Civic Centre, where the capital’s top officer explained what the introduction of the new Local Policing Model (LPM) to Hillingdon means for the people living there.
Residents were then able to put their questions to the commissioner.
The closure of some of Hillingdon’s police front desks as well as the reduction of numbers in Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) were raised and Sir Hogan-Howe explained that staff cuts and land-sell offs were necessary raise capital to eventually allow the recruitment of more police officer over the next two years.
