Hydra teaching at Met’s Hendon Academy

The famous Hendon Police Academy in Hendon, hosted a Hydra session for IAG members. The tech-driven teaching strategy provides a events simulator, which involves various agencies for problem solving. These tech suites are used to train police officers.

I met members of the Hackney IAG last Sunday.

IAG members can also be Neighbourhood Watch members. IAG consult on specific aspects of communal issues.

At this moment in time I am having problems location any details about the Tower Hamlets Independent Advisory Groups. I could find a query on the MOPAC website from 2006.

IAG groups give special advise on

  • Race
  • LGBT
  • Gypsy and Traveller
  • Youth
  • Disability
  • Trident
  • Gun crime in the Black Community
  • Sapphire (rape and sexual offending)
  • Safeguarding of children
  • Operation Blunt (knife crime)

I am awaiting actual details and shall up-date ASAP

Don’t waste time, report the crime

We fully support the extra charge of £1.20 per week of service charges for ASB patrols. The patrols are exactly what’s needed in known ASB hotspots. Report ASB to the council here.
