I attended the Waddon Ward policing meeting at the Hilton Hotel, Purley Way. In the meeting, we had conversations around how well to Police the ward using the new police strategy. We listened to the spots in the ward where extra policing based on current reports is needed and how the police is attending to it. It was a great opportunity to meet the wonderful ward police team and other residents of the ward with concerns about policing. It was however very shocking that no current sitting councillor in the ward attended the meeting. This view was expressed strongly by other attendees at the meeting.
