Westminster loses three police stations in the north of the borough

Confirmation of what we suspected for station closures in the north of the borough

 If you want confirmation of what we have always suspected was going to happen in the North of the City of Westminster, the diagram above released today as part fo the Mayors Policing & Crime Plan  confirms our worst fears – closure of 3 out of the 4 Police stations and more reliance on the contact and safer neighbourhood policing in the South and neigbouring boroughs.

Very few areas in London has suffered such a prolific loss of front counters as we know them.  Paddington Green police station is the only survivor but is one of the most unwelcoming because of the huge security presence it is associated with, due in part to the terrorist unit being based there.

This is a huge loss to the north of the borough where it appears the face of policing will never be the same again.
