Cllr Roberto Weeden-Sanz, Chairman of the Barnet Safer Communities Partnership Board, said: “We stand for Sarah Everard and all the women who are victims of male violence. Her tragic murder has focused public attention on the unacceptable ever-present threat to the safety and wellbeing of women and girls.
“While Barnet has the second lowest rate of domestic abuse reports among all London boroughs we will continue to work tirelessly to make Barnet a safe home for every woman and girl who lives, works and studies here. Violence simply has no place in our community.
“The council and the local organisations it partners with will redouble our efforts to prevent violence, improve outcomes for victims and their children, and hold perpetrators to account.
All our thoughts are with Sarah Everard’s family and friends at this difficult time.
