Labour's Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour Survey 2013
With worries about crime and antisocial behaviour topping residents' concerns Labour have launched 'listening campaign' to identify the best local solutions to deal with increasing crime levels in the borough.
The Labour campaign comes amid serious concern about rising crime with reported offences in Tower Hamlets up 9% under the current Mayor of the borough, Lutfur Rahman, while at the same time crime has dropped 2% across London.
Labour will be keeping residents involved in the development of solutions, beginning with a series of meetings across the borough to discuss the particular crime challenges in each local area.
The new initiative is part of Labour's push to involve local people in our policies for the upcoming elections in stark contrast to Lutfur Rahman's secretive and inaccessible administration.
Unlike the current Mayor, Labour believes that our community is stronger when it works together collaboratively, that is why we won't waste hundreds of thousands of pounds on consultants. We will take our lead from listening to the real experts on Tower Hamlets, the people who live here.
Labour is listening.
We want to hear your concerns and take action.
