I hope you are well!
Last night I hosted my latest Crime Summit at St Dionis, Fulham. I regularly host these public crime meetings to give residents the opportunity to raise concerns and questions about crime in the local community directly with the Metropolitan Police and local elected representatives.
There was a fantastic turn out, with many residents from across Fulham and Chelsea attending. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to join the meeting and raise important points and questions. The questions covered a wide range of concerns and topics, and I would like to thank the brilliant panel for responding to every question asked of them.
On the panel I was joined by Hammersmith and Fulham Police officers - Superintendent Craig Knight and Sergeant Tom Martis-Jones, Assembly Member Tony Devenish, and Fulham Councillors - Councillor Victoria Brocklebank-Fowler and Councillor Andrew Dinsmore.
Working to keep Chelsea and Fulham safe is a key part of my local plan, and making sure residents feel safe is a priority for me. It was good to hear from the Police about the increasing officer numbers, the plan - A New Met for London, and local data such as residential burglary being down. There was also encouragement from Tony, Victoria and Andrew to report crimes and get involved in ward panels.
Thanks again to everyone who attended last night!
The Rt Hon Greg Hands MP
Member of Parliament for Chelsea and Fulham
