We, the undersigned, call on the Metropolitan Police to reconsider its decision to close the police station in Dartmouth Road SE26.
Sydenham is a crime “hotspot” within the borough of Lewisham, and is experiencing high levels of robbery and knife crime. Closure of the local police station, and the transfer of the Safer Neighbourhood Team to Catford, will exacerbate the situation and make it more difficult for community policing to operate effectively.
We urge the Borough Commander to reverse this decision at the earliest opportunity.
