Lambeth Police have introduced Local Policing Teams (LPT), each consisting of at least 16 Police Officers, who directly police a cluster of ward areas. Lambeth has been divided into 6 clusters, each led by an Inspector. Response Teams continue to provide 24 hours cover to answer emergency calls, and Safer Neighbourhoods Teams (SNT) still police ward priorities as set by their panel.
LPTs are responsible for most of the non urgent calls from the public, assisting the SNTs with problem solving, policing and supporting the response teams when required. In addition to existing SNT ward panel arrangements, which we have been assured remain the same, public cluster meetings will be held every three months to identify priorities within the clusters.
