Many member organisations of the Harrow Council for Justice (HCJ) were the founder members of the Harrow Police and Community Consultative Group (HPCCG) and as such remain interested in the work and welfare of the HPCCG. There are serious concerns about how this body has now been treated by some.

More specific to the HPCCG meeting on 11/7/11, there is an uneasy feeling that the HPCCG has been unfairly criticised.

What should really matter is the work of the HPCCG and not the personalities.

The HPCCG was an initiative under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE) to involve communities in the local policing matters. Over the years, it has developed wider relationships with the communities, sharing some of its resources. If there are concerns regarding this aspect of the HPCCG’s work, then these can be addressed in a non-confrontational manner.

The HCJ deplores any personal or political point scoring at the HPCCG meetings.

In a separate move, in an open letter to Baroness Warsi, the Conservative Party Co-Chairman, the HCJ has drawn her attention to what has been reported in Harrow and has asked, “Would you agree with us that such situations are not only contrary to the spirit of the ‘big society’ but also have serious implications for the social and community cohesion - if you agree, what your Party is going to do about this?”.

The HCJ is not under the influence of any political party nor it is in the business of promoting councillors or other elected representatives but it shares its analysis of socio-political and economic situations with voters to help them to make well informed democratic choices.
