At the Police and Crime Plenary, the GLA Conservative Group will challenge the Mayor and Met Commissioner to tackle inefficiencies and waste in the Met.
Commenting, Roger Evans, the London Conservatives Police Spokesperson said,
“In spite of significant savings made each year there are still opportunities to make savings in the Met.
“I'm delighted that the number of police officers will increase under the new plans, but we need to tackle the inefficiencies that still waste officers' time. Custody can be very slow, with officers waiting up to two hours to book prisoners in. They also spend time completing too many forms which could be replaced with barcode scanners and new technology.
“Less time wasted means more time patrolling the streets, catching criminals and making London safer.”
