Wimbledon Police Station
Wimbledon Police Station was earmarked for closure in 2017 as part of the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime’s (MOPAC) plan to reduce their expenditure.
Love Wimbledon has campaigned on this issue since the first announcement keeping businesses up to date with communications and developments on this issue. Read our news feature.
In July 2018, there was a High Court ruling, following an appeal led by local Councillor and resident, Paul Kohler that resulted in the Deputy Mayor for MOPAC having to review her decision. Read our news feature.
As a BID we have worked extensively with the local police teams since 2012 to reduce crime in the town centre. This has involved building a very successful monthly Pubwatch meeting for all licensed premises and helping to build strong relationships between local police officers and businesses.
