Under the Conservatives, Kensington & Chelsea has lost three of four police stations in just 20 years. 

The Notting Dale, Notting Hill, and Chelsea sites have all closed down and the Kensington Station little more than a rest stop for Safer Neighbourhood Teams and the Rough Sleeper Initiative.

RBKC Metropolitan Police now have to be based outside the borough in Hammersmith. In situations when seconds count, the police are now miles away. 

We have spoken to many residents who tell us of their alarm over the increase in anti-social behaviour, drug dealing, muggings, and thefts from cars.

Over the past two years, police waiting times have skyrocketed. Victims of crime are waiting three times longer in London than in the rest of the country. To add insult to injury, crimes simply aren’t being solved. Over half of all burglaries go unsolved, as do nearly 3 in 4 motor vehicle thefts, according to Met Police statistics from the first three quarters of 2022.

People tell us they want a return to community policing, where officers are visible, trusted and known personally to local people. We must challenge the Council to stand up to the Met and the Mayor and make the case for our borough and its residents. 

Local Liberal Democrats are calling on the Mayor and RBKC council to create new community police hubs in our Borough to make our streets safe again. Sign our petition below:
