Lib Dems welcome change in Policing

6 Feb 2023

As reporting in Ealing Today, the Metropolitan Police has announced that it is restoring the system of having an officer of Superintendent rank in charge of each London local authority area. The overhaul of the current policing model means that, once again, an individual police officer will oversee policing in Ealing borough. 

Councillor Connie Hersch, the Ealing Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Policing and Communities said, “The Liberal Democrats in Ealing welcome the efforts of the metropolitan police to re-build trust by appointing an Ealing Superintendent and also the additional Community Support Officers. Recent national police issues have shaken this trust and lowered the credibility of the police force. This positive action allows to rebuild from the base up by creating a locally identifiable police leader.

“Liberal Democrats successfully campaigned for Ealing Council to reverse its policy of light dimming. We are looking forward working closely with the new Superintendent to make our residents feel safer again.”

Councillor Gary Malcolm, Liberal Democrat Leader of the Opposition said, “The Liberal Democrats believe that although the additional PCSOs are welcomed, this will not result in a huge number for our area. We need more PCs as well to help restore community safety.”
