Residents in Knightsbridge are reporting to me an increase in anti-social behaviour and crime, which is not being tackled. Will you work with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to create a plan to prevent this?

Anti-social behaviour is a mandatory priority for all London boroughs as set out in my Police and Crime Plan. MOPAC already funds projects to tackle ASB at a borough level through the London Crime Prevention Fund (LCFP) and I have committed to maintaining the level of investment in the LCPF over the four years to 2021. MOPAC has also made £1 million available to Safer Neighbourhood Boards (SNB), including Kensington and Chelsea’s SNB, to bid for to fund projects to cut neighbourhood crime and boost public confidence, empowering boroughs to create locally driven problem-solving action plans.

ASB is also integrated in the roles of the two Dedicated Ward Officers and one PCSO per ward. The MPS has introduced training packages for all officers on ASB and a full specific training day for Neighbourhood officers.
