Chaired by Justine Greening, MP for Putney
Putney Conservatives are organising a debate at St Mary's Church, Putney on Thursday 9 May at 7.30pm. The topic 'Making London Safe' aims to tackle the growing problem and threat from knife crime incidents, violence and drug gang warfare. With the number of homicides and knife crimes reaching unprecedented levels this open discussion will examine efforts to prevent this growing threat and consider the possible root causes of this affliction.
The speakers include Commander Simon Rose, Head of Crime, Metropolitan Police, responsible for front line policing, robbery, burglary and violent crime for South and West London, The Rt Hon, Nick Hurd, Minister for Policing, Fire Service and Minister for London, Shaun Bailey, Conservative candidate for London Mayor and member of the London Assembly.
There will also be an opportunity to hear from panellists Andy Smith, Co-Founder and CEO of the charity Regenerate - a local organisation working with young people in Roehampton and estates across London with the aim of helping to transform lives and communities, plus Inspector Barrie Capper, Head of Wandsworth Neighbourhood Policing Team.
The debate will be chaired by Justine Greening, MP for Putney.
