The London Borough of Havering has been named as a finalist in the forthcoming MJ Achievement Awards 2017. The council is a finalist in the ‘Delivering Better Outcomes’ category in recognition of the innovative way in which it is addressing the issue of keeping children safe in the streets around local schools.
The winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony which is taking place at London Hilton Hotel, 22 Park Lane on 15th June 2017. To book a table please click here.
The council has introduced Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) to crack down on dangerous driving and parking during the school run. This is the first pilot scheme of its kind to use Public Space Protection Orders (PSPOs) making anti-social driving a criminal offence in areas around schools. To enforce the new scheme, a Videalert CCTV-based traffic enforcement and management system has been installed as part of an initial pilot contract awarded to OpenView Security Solutions.
