Following a public meeting on crime hosted by Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake recently police visibility, burglary and moped crime were raised as key concerns by local residents.

There was also discussion about a police base in Wallington with the MP putting forward a suggestion of dual use of Wallington Fire station.

Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake said:

“The current police base at Crosspoint House has closed  forcing officers to travel over to Wallington from Sutton Police Station by public transport. This is not sustainable and it’s clear that a new location for an SNT base is needed.

“Wallington Fire Station fits the bill — it’s open 24/7 and it’s logical to have two emergency services located in the same building. I have written to the London Fire Brigade, putting across a strong case for a joint base. I hope they respond positively.”
