Stephen Greenhalgh

Deputy Mayor for  Policing and Crime

We have an infantile system of government where we have to go and get money in our city where there’s an economy of £350 billion. London’s economy is growing and I would like to see greater devolution. We already raise money so we should be able to keep that money.  We raise the money over here and spend it over here, that’s where we will be held to account.

In my area of policing and crime it is critical to make sensible savings. Let’s ask for devolution of London’s criminal justice system, let’s get a system to focus on reducing reoffending. Let’s have a service where people work together, share control rooms and save money.
