No MOPAC representative has attended meetings of Barnet Safer Neighbourhood Board for at least a year; nor were apologies for absence sent. What is the reason for this and will you ensure MOPAC representation at the next Barnet Safer Neighbourhood Board meeting?

I have been advised that a member of my Office for Policing and Crime’s (MOPAC) Community Engagement Team last attended a meeting of Barnet Safer Neighbourhood Board (SNB) on 19 March 2019. In supporting 32 Boards and various other engagement mechanisms, members of the Team are not able to attend every SNB meeting but do endeavour to maintain contact with the Boards through other means.

Safer Neighbourhood Boards are an important element of the local police-community engagement structure and that is why they have provided them with a £1m fund to support local engagement and community safety projects in addition to the support offered by MOPAC’s Community Engagement Team.
