The Safer Neighbourhood strategy was implemented approximately 10 years ago with the main aim of providing policing teams that would be close to and work with the community. The community in question is based on an electoral ward and the number of Police Officers within each team is based on the Wards population as determined from the 2001 Census.

Safer Neighbourhoods teams ( SNT's ) are not there to provide a 24-hour response; this is the role of the mobile response team officers ( responding to 999 calls, etc). Response team officers do pass on information to all of the Safer Neighbourhoods teams as appropriate. The SNT's deal with long term problem solving and "preventative" Policing.

The Mayor's Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC) is the strategic oversight body which sets the direction and budget for the Metropolitan Police Service on behalf of the Mayor. It ensures the Metropolitan Police Service is run efficiently and effectively and holds it, and other criminal justice services, to account on behalf of Londoners.

The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 established a Police and Crime Commissioner for each police force area across England and Wales. In London, the equivalent to Police and Crime Commissioner is the elected Mayor of London.

The Mayor is able to appoint a Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime to undertake the vast majority of duties assigned to him and he has done so. Stephen Greenhalgh has been the Deputy Mayor for Policing & Crime since 1st June 2012.

As well as setting the direction and budget for the MPS, MOPAC sets targets, scrutinises police performance and commissions selects services on behalf of the Mayor - including crime prevention schemes in boroughs via the London Crime Prevention Fund and, from 1st October 2014, victim support services across London.

All operational decision-making on day-to-day policing matters remains the responsibility of the Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
