Members were informed that the London Fire Brigade joined the operation.
A Member stated that she was pleased that joint operations were taking place once again following the pause during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Deputy Chair queried if the police had identified a reason for the increase in offences in hotels. Members received an update on the training that hotels have received and were informed that Operation Make Safe will be restarting.
A Member stated there are a number of new student residences within the City and that this will bring with it a new demographic with a different behaviour pattern.
The Chair informed the Committee that he has asked that the City of London Police Authority Board and the Licensing Committee are kept suitably informed about the progress of Destination City plans going forward.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
