At today's Police and Crime Plenary, Deputy Mayor Victoria Borwick will ask the Mayor to introduce a Met Smartphone app for the ‘Met Police Beat’ which allows you to follow and communicate with your Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT).

Commenting Victoria Borwick said,

“The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police says we need to improve technology to engage with Londoners. This app could prove to be a ground-breaking way to re-connect communities with their local police.

“Surrey police have a Smartphone App which allows the public to connect with their local SNTs. It makes the police far more accessible as it provides residents with local crime information. It also gives local people the opportunity to have a say over local priorities and be actively involved.

“Most SNT police are very hard-working and this App will ensure we know what police are doing each day and allow the public to help fight crime through information sharing".
