The Deputy Mayor for Policing & Crime and I have met with a range of businesses and listened to their concerns regarding crime. I know that addressing this is one of their main priorities and that’s why I have provided £251.3 million of additional investment to tackle violence. Part of this money has helped to pay for the Violent Crime Task Force who have been running several successful operations in Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea. My Deputy Mayor convened a meeting of retailers last April. As part of my Police and Crime Plan, I have championed the role of Business Crime Reduction Partnerships and have been working with colleagues in central London to extend the reach and remit of these groups.
