Safer Neighbourhood Board

Safer Neighbourhood Boards are the means by which the Mayor of London (through the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC)) holds borough police command units to account for performance.

Police women talking to a man

Safer Neighbourhood Boards have a number of responsibilities to give London residents and victims of crime a greater voice in setting policing priorities. Hillingdon Safer Neighbourhood Board was launched in March 2014. The Board provides independent scrutiny, challenge, and strategic vision to ensure that the police collaborate and work together with other agencies successfully to co-ordinate and promote crime reduction in Hillingdon.
