Muswell Hill police station

I go to visit the volunteers at Muswell Hill Police station. I cannot explain how fantastic it feels to have worked with local people to make this happen – to get the front counter open again. It’s what we all wanted – but the amount of effort, campaigning, arguments it took …

But now, it is open four days a week and rising. I met three of the volunteers. Diane Dodd (the volunteer director) and the volunteers themselves are doing such a fantastic job. There is a good turnout of members of the public coming to make use of the service. And the best thing is the re-engagement of community and the force that polices it.
