Board established in April 2014.
The purpose of theSafer Neighbourhood Boards is to be the vehicle through which the Mayor of London (through the Deputy Mayor and the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime) holds local police services to account for performance, giving Londoners and victims a greater voice in setting policing priorities. These boards will operate on a borough-wide basis and will also have access to a crime prevention fund for local delivery.
The Haringey Safer Neighbourhood Board sits alongside the Haringey Community Safety Partnership (CSP) and above existing ward and cluster panels.
Safer Neighbourhood Boards have a number of specific
responsibilities as below:
· Helping to establish policing priorities for the borough
· Monitoring volumes, trends and types of complaints from victims of crime and complaints from members of the public against police officers
· Monitoring crime performance and community confidence
· Playing a significant role in setting tasks for Community Payback
· Ensuring all wards have a ward panel of residents
· Supporting the Independent Advisory Group
· Supporting the Custody Visitors Panel and ensuring the system of custody visiting is delivered
· Ensuring the stop and search community monitoring function is delivered
· Supporting Neighbourhood Watch
· Developing bids for funds from a crime prevention fund
If the term of an elected Member of the Council ceases, the relevant membership of the SNB will also cease.
An independent Chair is appointed through interview from among the full board.
Members are selected or appointed for their specific, personal experience and abilities so deputies will not be accepted at board meetings.
· A minimum of 3 meetings a year will be held in different areas of the borough
· One crime summit/public meeting to be held annually
