This Safer Neighbourhood Board was set up in 2014 by Islington Council and the police to give local people and victims a greater voice in setting policing priorities and improve consultation between the community, the police, the council and other partners. It is responsible for:
- Setting local policing and crime priorities – to ensure the right focus on the most important crime and safety issues for local residents
- Monitoring police and partner performance and the communities confidence in tackling crime
- Monitoring victim complaints and complaints against local police officers - to ensure they are dealt with appropriately and fairly
- Deciding how funding provided by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime is spent in Islington.
