Stop the planned closures and sell-offs of both Barkingside and Woodford Police Stations and working with the national Government, local councillors, MPs, GLA members and Residents to maintain them.
Why is this important?
Although Woodford Police Station is closed to the public, it is a vital hub for local Police Officers. There are 4 planned hubs for Ward Officers in Redbridge. However, it is unclear where these will be and Woodford residents may not be able to locate their local officers easily. The closure of Barkingside Police Station will affect the most vulnerable residents greatly as this will mean that we only have one 24 hour Police Station open to the public in Redbridge, which is in Ilford. This isn't good enough and many will find it difficult to go to report crime and sometimes unable to do so in other ways.
Even though the public consultation is already closed, we need to keep the pressure up to make sure we keep these Police Stations in use.
