London’s top cop is visiting the borough next week to answer residents’ questions.

Metropolitan Police Service Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe will be in Croydon next Wednesday to talk to residents about his policing vision.

He will also take questions on issues of crime and policing.

Croydon’s acting borough commander Superintendent Rob Atkin said: “I’d encourage local residents, or those who regularly visit or work in Croydon to come along to this event and take their chance to speak to the Commissioner about crime and policing in the borough.

“This is their chance to hear his vision for the Metropolitan Police and to put their ideas and thoughts forward as well.”

The event is being held on Wednesday January 23 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm at Croydon College, College Road, Croydon, CR9 1DX.

Doors open at 6.00pm and places will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis.
