I really feel the need to share my concerns over local policing, with the Stabbing at Clapham South this week and the reported lack of policing on our streets, why was it a priority to place 1 policewoman and 1 police man on the short path between the tennis courts and Skylark cafe on Wandsworth Common for 3 hrs on Thursday, with the purpose of giving out warnings to dog walkers who hadn’t put their dogs on the lead and cyclist who hadn’t dismounted. I’m horrified and question who is making these decisions over our police resources. I asked the policeman why we don’t see police around the rest of the common at different times of the day to deter the drug dealing and young people gathering at night on the common and to reduce muggings. I was told they only work a day shift and if you see something happening on the common we should call the emergency services, I thought emergency serves were at breaking point! I don’t understand why police resources aren’t being priorities to our street to deal with and deter serious crime and protect young people.
