MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Lib Dem Parliamentary spokesperson Lynne Featherstone has, with her fellow Lib Dem councillors, launched a major survey of crime in the Hornsey and Wood Green area. Ms Featherstone hopes that the results of the survey, which is being delivered to over 40,000 homes in the area, will aid her work on the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) and also help the Council and residents to work with the police in the fight against crime.
She is urging as many local residents as possible to respond to the FREEPOST survey.
The survey covers many issues of crime concern, such as crime levels, reporting of crime and safety in the area, and seeks to identify local problems that often need attention, such as poor lighting, graffiti and abandoned cars.
Lynne Featherstone comments:
“Our survey should help to highlight crime problems in the area. One problem is that residents will say that a particular type of crime is affecting them but this is not shown in the police statistics. This is often because relatively minor crimes frequently go unreported, for example because many people are unsure how to report a crime if a 999 call is not appropriate. This can mean that police resources are misdirected, so we all need to work together to crack this problem.
“I hope as many people as possible will participate, This will help our work with the police to reduce crime in the area.”
If you haven’t received a copy of the survey and would like one posted to you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
