Sharing information online and reinforcing traditional policing values
Steve Miles has worked in London's Metropolitan Police Service for more than 14 years and believes online information-sharing systems allow police to share vital information with confidence to the benefit of the police and communities they serve.
Steve works on Safer Neighbourhoods policing across Wandsworth, where his responsibilities include community engagement, proactive problem-solving and undertaking the investigation of all low-level crime.
So when news of a successful crime reduction project in an adjacent borough reached Wandsworth, it was very much in his team's interest to investigate. As Steve explains: "We look to each other for best practice and the Sutton scheme seemed well suited to Wandsworth."
