Welcome to the Camden Community and Police Consultative Group (CCPCG) website.

Our first public meeting of 2013 will be taking place on Thursday 31 January, 7.00 pm, in the The Salvation Army Hall, 10-16 Haverstock Hill, Chalk Farm, London NW3 2BL. We will also be holding a Special Public meeting on Thursday 28 February to discuss the Night-time Economy, again from 7.00 pm at the Salvation Army Hall.

The CCPCG is a community-led forum that has been at the forefront of police and community engagement in Camden for over 25 years. We have a borough-wide remit to hold the police and wider Community Safety Partnership to account which we achieve through:

    Holding six public meetings a year where we discuss matters of crime and disorder, paying particular attention to residents’ concerns identified during the annual strategic assessment, and challenging police and council performance when needed. At these meetings members of the public are invited to put their questions and concerns directly to senior police management in Camden, including the Borough Commander, as well as to senior representatives of Camden Council’s Community Safety Team.
    Appointing community representatives to meet with the police Borough Commander, the Council’s Head of Community Safety and the Metropolitan Police Authority’s Link Member six times a year in an environment of trust and confidentiality.
    Independently managing the Police Stop and Search Monitoring Group where we oversee how the police use their powers.
    Playing an active role at all levels of the Camden Community Safety Partnership

The CCPCG is a growing conduit for communications between the statutory agencies and the community. We have an email list of over 600 people who we keep informed about crime and antisocial behaviour issues. Anyone living or working in Camden can join the list, just complete the newsletter sign-up box opposite.

We are always keen to involve young people in our activities. We understand that they don’t always want to attend formal meetings so we undertake a programme of outreach activities in local schools and youth clubs. If you would like the CCPCG to talk to young people you work with please contact Peter Ward on 020 7383 0000 or email
