Live webchat with Lewisham's Borough Commander

The Press Release reads:
Lewisham Borough Commander Chief Superintendent Russell Nyman will host his first live Borough webchat on Thursday 18th October between 6:45pm-7:45pm.

The web chat, called Ask Lewisham, is a unique opportunity for members of the public to ask questions about policing issues in their local neighbourhood.
The session will provide a unique opportunity for members of the public to put questions to their Borough Commander directly and to ask him about any concerns or queries they have about their local neighbourhood.
The webchats are all part of the Commissioner's commitment to hear directly from the public to find out their views on how the MPS can be the best police service.

Lewisham Borough Commander, Chief Supt Russell Nyman "This is a great opportunity to directly engage with the residents of Lewisham and find out about their concerns. I want to hear what they think about policing in Lewisham, what we are doing well at and what we need to do better at."

Members of the public can join the webchat between 6:45pm and 7:45pm at 
People can pre-submit questions on Twitter using #AskLewisham.
There is also a live webchat with the Met's Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe on Friday 19 October between 10.30 and 11.30am. You can join the discussion and pre-submit a question on Twitter using #AskMetBoss. Apparently, "More than 1,400 people have joined the Commissioner during his webchats, questioning him on a variety of topics including racism, drugs, uniform and terrorism. During the last webchat we received over one hundred questions during the hour long session hosted on the MPS website, and nearly four hundred people took part."

A peek at Twitter at the time of writing reveals hardly anyone except Cllr Duwayne Brooks (LibDem, Downham) is pre-submmitting questions of Lewisham Met's new Borough Commander at #Ask Lewisham, whilst Lee Jasper is asking all the questions at #AskMetBoss.


You can see/read the replay of the Lewisham webchat at the Met website.

  1. With all the cuts in resources, is there any point in complaining that the cops took two hours to respond to a break-in in Creekside last night where the intruder may still have been present, or is it just Deptford where this poor response occurs?
