Policing report from City Hall, June 2016

The Mayor has appointed Sophie Linden, the deputy Mayor of Hackney, as his deputy Mayor for Policing (she will give up her Hackney role). We held a confirmation hearing for her appointment.

I have had a preliminary ‘off the record’ discussion with  her about the issues that are concerning  people in the two boroughs, and we have our first full formal q and a session with her early next month.
