Please inform us of any community safety concerns!

On Wednesday the BPCA were contacted by the 'Communities Together Strategic Engagement Team' (CTSET) at New Scotland Yard.

The role of their department is to promote and support community cohesion between the various communities in London and also to monitor community tensions.

They made contact with us to see if we would like to be an independent partner to the police and offer any advice/guidance/opinions about the Pakistani Christian community in London, to them.

This will provide the BPCA with an opportunity to give Scotland Yard any general community feedback on issues which would affect our Pakistani Christian community and would give us an opportunity to 'have Pakistani Christian views heard'.

They may also consult with the BPCA if any Police organisation were to make any 'Strategic' decisions on matters which could effect members of the Pakistani Christian community, either directly or indirectly.

We will be meeting up with the Police next week and will hopefully ensure that matters affecting our community are addressed and represented at a strategic level.

Hopefully our interactions will prevent a build up of any hostility with wider faith groups, reduce potential for polarisation and fanaticism within and without our community. Moreover, we hope that it will bring appropriate safeguards to protect our community.

If there are any issues or concerns that you would like us to discuss with Scotland Yard, Please do inform us within the next few days so that we can cascade this information across.
