The Havering Daily ran a poll on Wednesday 24 of November asking our readers did they have trust in the Met Police. We received hundreds of responses and the results showed that just over 75% of you have trust in our police, with 24% saying they did not.
The news comes despite a barrage of biased reporting, when the results of our poll show the exact opposite.
East Area officers have fantastic engagement within the three east London boroughs and their frontline officers work tirelessly to keep our communities safe.
The Romford Town Centre police teams work long hours across the weekend to tackle violent crime and anti social behaviour. This is just one example of the all the work that goes on across not just in East Area but the whole of the Met.
A/Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Trevers told the Havering Daily: “We are pleased to hear that 75 percent of respondents still have trust in the Metropolitan Police.
“As the BCU Commander for Havering, Barking and Dagenham and Redbridge we are focusing our efforts to make improvements where necessary and build confidence. The Metropolitan Police Service will strive to prevent and reduce violence and the crimes Londoners care most about, bringing more criminals to justice, and to protect, support and build the confidence of all our communities”.
