Women working and living in London can Walk & Talk with officers to share their thoughts on safety and how to bring about positive change.
The Walk & Talk initiative involves female officers buddying up with women to go out on patrol in open spaces so that they can hear first-hand their experiences, concerns and reflections.
How the scheme works
Walk & Talks are open to women aged 18 and above, living or working in London, who would like to go for a walk with a female officer in their local area and discuss their views on women’s safety. Those who take part in a Walk & Talk can share their views and experiences with officers as they walk through any areas they may feel vulnerable in.
The aim of the Metropolitan Police’s Walk & Talks is to start a conversation between members of the public and officers, so that the police can listen and respond to concerns.
The Walks & Talks can take place at a time that is most convenient for you. If you would like to be part of the initiative, you can visit the link here.
StreetSafe is a service for anyone to anonymously tell us about public places where you have felt or feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, e.g. street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of some behaviours, e.g. being followed or verbally abused.
