Two-thirds of residents in Brent have confidence in the police according to data reveal by two online trackers.

The Confidence Dashboard and Neighbourhood Confidence Comparator launched by the London Mayor’s office, allows the public to see how well their local police are performing compared to other similar areas.

The tools also shows confidence at a borough level which is currently at 66 per cent for Brent, and can determine the age and ethnicity of residents with the least confidence in the police.

The highest confidence in London is from residents in Richmond with 86 per cent and those living in Newham have the least at 49 per cent.

Stephen Greenhalgh, the deputy mayor for policing and crime said: “Right now in Brent, confidence in the police is not as high as we would like, although some parts of the borough have higher confidence scores.

“We hope these tools will be used by local police leaders to make fair comparisons between similar neighbourhoods in order to learn from areas of London with higher levels of confidence.”
