The Brent and Kilburn Times LINK is reporting that Brent's police chief is considering closing Willesden Green Police Station. At a meeting at Brent Town Hall last night Chief Superintendent Matthew Gardner, in what appeared to be a political comment, said:
There are currently three officers behind the front counter at Willesden police station which I am looking at closing.
Do I have officers behind a desk and not doing anything?
As soon as you start taking away libraries and closing up police counters people get angry but we can’t continue to deliver these services.
We need them to listen and to understand. It is going to be difficult.
