Letter: Islington needs targeted, visible policing

14 March 2018

Dear Editor,
 
Following the public meeting last November there are continuing problems with violent muggings and moped crime in Tufnell Park and Archway.
 
Despite the efforts of local police, people are feeling intimidated and scared by almost daily reports of knifepoint muggings.
 
Inspector Steven Murfin has communicated police actions and local youth initiatives via Nextdoor.com.  However people are questioning the lack of targeted, visible policing given that many of these crimes seem to be on the same streets at the same time.
 
I understand that the police are very under resourced due to cuts but the current situation cannot continue.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Natasha Cox 
Green Party candidate for St Georges ward
