Special Public Meeting: Tackling Violent Crime in our neighbourhood

When: Saturday 16 February 2019

Where: Carnegie Library, 192 Herne Hill Road, London SE24 0AG

Time:   12 noon – 2.00 pm

A public meeting has been organised by Lambeth councillors to address the growing concern about violent crime, especially the impact it has on young people.  Last week Scotland Yard published latest figures showing that half of all knife crime offenders in London are teenagers or even younger children.

Local community leaders, elected representatives, faith leaders and local police will be present to discuss ideas to help address the issue of violent crime. It is hoped this might become a recurring series of meetings, so if you are keen to keep this issue at the top of the agenda, please take the opportunity to make your voice heard.

Speakers include:

Helen Hayes, MP for Dulwich & West Norwood

Florence Eshalomi, Assembly Member for Lambeth & Southwark

Cllr Mohammed Seedat, Cabinet Member for Community Safety, LB Lambeth

Pastor Peter Adigun Province Head Celestial Church of Christ, Loughborough Junction

Representatives from Lambeth Police Service

Organised by Herne Hill Ward Councillors.
