Report of the Commissioner.
The Committee received a report of the Commissioner which provided the Quarterly Community Engagement Update.
The Chair commented that it was vital to ensure there was the required collaboration between the City of London Corporation and Police adding that he would be writing to the Town Clerk requesting the urgent work on the Crime and Disorder Scrutiny Committee and the Safer City Partnership Board. Officers confirmed that work was being undertaken to agree an updated terms of reference for the Crime and Disorder Scrutiny Committee to facilitate correct Member oversight of the Safer City Partnership Board which, it was added, would be meeting on at least a quarterly basis, with the next meeting due on the 30th November.
Replying to a Member’s question Officers explained the methodology used to achieve the appropriate balance between daytime and night policing concerns.
The anti-social behaviour data was highlighted by the Chair of the Police Authority Board and requested further information on the specifics of policing in the Barbican. It was confirmed that Officers would report back to a future meeting of the Committee to provide this detail. It was noted that the Barbican Estate had introduced its own reporting system which may not align with formal reporting of incidents to the police.
Following a Member’s enquiry it was confirmed that the Force was engaged with the Business Improvement Districts in the City of London.
RESOLVED- That the report be noted.
