SAFER STREETS: Walk and talk in Northwood about women’s safety with police

 Published on: 14th September 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A new event in Northwood organised by the Met Police will allow women to talk directly to female police officers about their safety concerns.

The Walk & Talk initiative is being launched across London, with the event taking place in Northwood from 11am to 12pm on Saturday, September 24.

It involves female officers buddying up with women from the community whilst on patrol, where they can hear first-hand the reflections and concerns of said person.

The goal is to start dialogue between local women and their local female officers about issues that affect them, and eventually start to combat them.

The scheme, which was initially launched on March 8 (International Women’s Day) earlier this year, comes after public erosion of the Met’s handling of women’s safety, especially after the murder of Sarah Everard by a serving police officer.

The event will begin outside the old police station on Maxwell Road in Northwood. It is a free event open to any woman aged over 18 years old, but registration is required. To sign up, visit the event’s ticketing link.
