The Met Police announced recently that from March 2023, Ealing and all 32 London borough's will have a senior officer of Superintendent rank to lead local policing. They also unveiled that it will also be recruiting 500 more Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) however Ealing's Inspector Ballard referred to 1,600 extra PCSOs rather than the 500 mentioned.

Councillor Connie Hersch, Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Policing and Communities said: "The Liberal Democrats in Ealing welcome the efforts of the metropolitan police to re-build trust by appointing an Ealing Superintendent and also the additional Community Support Officers.

"Recent national police issues have shaken this trust and lowered the credibility of the police force. This positive action allows to rebuild from the base up by creating a locally identifiable police leader.

"Liberal Democrats successfully campaigned for Ealing Council to reverse its policy of light dimming. We are looking forward working closely with the new Superintendent to make our residents feel safer again."

Councillor Gary Malcolm, Liberal Democrat Leader of the Opposition said: "The Liberal Democrats believe that although the additional PCSOs are welcomed, this will not result in a huge number for our area. We need more PCs as well to help restore community safety."
