Eight police stations in Lambeth could close as part of the Government's plans to slash £400m from the Met's budget.
The force has already had to save £600m since 2010 and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has warned that there could be 12,800 fewer police officers on London's streets.
The proposals, set out in MOPAC's Public Access and Engagement Strategy would mean the following stations would close:
- Loughborough Junction
- Cobalt Square
- Clement Avenue
- Coldharbour Lane
- Norwood Road
- Cavendish Road
The government is trying to protect the public on the cheap - mass station closures will make it much more difficult for officers to carry out the community-focused, neighbourhood policing that is vital to keeping our streets safe.
That is why Lambeth's Labour councillors have joined with local MPs and respected community activists to launch a campaign to end these cuts.
Together we have launched a new petition; help us send a clear message that the Government should scrap these cuts and work with the Mayor to keep our police stations open: https://www.change.org/p/sos-saveourstations
