Residents have until the end of today to register their opinions on crime and policing in the borough.

The consultation, which follows the Mayor of London’s Police and Crime Plan, seeks views on topics including neighbourhood policing, safety on public transport, support for victims and keeping young people safe.

Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for enforcement and community safety at Barking and Dagenham council, said: “I urge residents to make their views known on how they want London to be policed.

“We are still one of the safest cities in the world but need to make it even safer and make sure the police are addressing the concerns of the capital’s diverse communities.”

The consultation closes today.
