On Thursday 19th February, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) will be holding the second of several Community Action Days for 2015, on all boroughs across London. We will be building on the long-term good work of our neighbourhoods teams locally with community partners, and show-casing a wide range of engagement, advice and other events. The aims include developing relationships with often hard to reach sections of the community and responding to the "listening campaign", tackling locally identified issues.

Here in Merton, all 20 Merton Safer Neighbourhoods Teams with Local Policing Teams, Special Constables, Volunteer Police Cadets and others will be mounting a borough-wide series of operations and initiatives, equally across Mitcham, Morden and Wimbledon.

Each team will be holding a series of open public meetings at different times throughout the day, to welcome local people and talk about any issues of concern. Teams will also be mounting operations such as targeted patrols, traffic events with local authority partners, enforcing road safety, deterring offences and tackling illegal waste carrier activity.

For all the latest news, updates and other information, please see our website at www.met.police.uk/merton or follow us on Twitter @MPSMerton using #communityactionday."
