The borough’s new community safety chief has pledged to make her mark in Enfield after meeting officers from Enfield police station this week and learning more about the challenges they face.

Cllr Krystle Fonyonga, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health & Community Safety, met with police constables Mark Leader and Andy Cruickshank and paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of all the borough’s officers, while pledging to do all she could to work with residents to ‘stand up for the area’ against people committing crime and anti-social behaviour.

She went on to praise the ‘excellent officers and staff’ in the force and said she would be fighting for more cash from the government to tackle crime and anti-social behavior in the borough.

Cllr Fonyonga said: “I want to build on our successes in keeping residents safe by ensuring Enfield Council and the Metropolitan Police work increasingly closely together. In partnership we will work to make our streets safer, cut burglary rates, tackle gang related crime and expand our already excellent work in tackling domestic abuse and hate crime and make residents feel safer than ever before.

“We have also recently launched a clampdown on prostitution in Edmonton and will continue to focus our resources on the criminal behaviour that concerns our residents the most.

“I will be lobbying on behalf of the police and residents of Enfield to ensure they have the resources they need so they can continue to protect the residents of this borough.”

Enfield Borough Commander Carl Robinson from the Metropolitan Police said “We very much look forward to working with Cllr Fonyonga, and reinforcing the good relationship we have with the council”.
