I agree with the above - bring him back !
Zara P. ,Lambeth
He got results – reinstate him.
Bring him back !!
We must have Brian back – Great man !
Progressive views can’t be a bad thing – and much needed round here. Get him back.
Tamasin C. & Alistair H.
Seems to be in touch with a large chunk of the Lambeth people – so they promptly suspend him !
Fiona C., Lambeth
Sensible man – Lambeth needs him !
Jim W., Wales
Need him back !
Bring him back.
Christina K., Lambeth
We need good people like him to empower others to be active & realistic. Bring him back.
Sara K., Brixton.
Brixton and Lambeth need police officers like Brian Paddick, who aren’t afraid to tackle difficult issues.
Andrew W., Tulse Hill
Brian Paddick deserves the highest support of this community.
Victoria H., Brixton
Living near Loughborough Junction I think Brian Paddick got police priorities right, tackling the serious crime with intelligence.
Flora B. ,Lambeth
Supporting a more imaginative/innovative approach !
Emily H. ,Lambeth
Not surprised !
Bring him back & let him continue his good work. Thanks.
Hazel S., Lambeth
Doing a great job – bring him back ‘a breath of fresh air’
He’s not bad.
Bring back Brian !!
Victoria C., Lambeth
We need someone in touch with the community to solve our problems.
Natalie B. ,Lambeth
Bring him back soon.
Great to see some action of support. Local news on the website in relation to real local issues (i.e. muggings) + pos things.
Looking forward to his return !
Finally a police chief with some real understanding – not surprised they ditched him !
I believe Brian Paddick has made a huge difference to the reduction of supply of hard drugs in Brixton – Bring him back there is loads left to do !
Helen G., Tulse Hill
Bring back some common sense.
Esme – Tulse hill
He is a good copper – we want him back.
Have been following the whole saga. Smear campaign is obvious. It’s a shame a great committed successful copper who cares was kicked out.
Dan B. ,Lambeth
Of course Mr Paddick is the right solution for this area.
Dr & Mrs F. ,Lambeth
Mr Paddick was made a scapegoat. We need more support for him
Maria A. ,Lambeth
I have written to Lord Harris; And I hereby reiterate my support to reinstate Mr Brian Paddick to serve the Lambeth Community .
Being gay in the Met Police is normal. But I don’t feel that, as a police Chief, one should exhibit this as a forefront. Policing is, and should be, apolitical; non-sexual. Ban all drugs, including mind changing cannabis.
Andy F. ,Lambeth
I think we need more people like Brian Paddick to be innovative & take risks – not less – reinstate him !
Andrew T. ,Lambeth
Much more information is needed to understand the relationship between cannabis and hard drugs – ignorance is not helping anyone – Good Luck !
Phyllida P. ,Lambeth
He must stay !
Joanne S. ,Lambeth
We need people in power with this man’s approach.
He’s the best.
Bring him back.
Ed H. ,Lambeth
We need Brian back to rid the streets of drug dealers !
Mary R., Lambeth
About time someone had a realistic drugs policy in London.
Graeme M. ,Lambeth
The drugs project in Brixton was Brian Paddick’s vision. If he isn’t at the helm how can it be co-ordinated properly. Brixton needs him back to finish his hard work. Just when things were getting better the rug was pulled from under it.
Enya O. & Lauron B.
What’s the problem ??
Teresa M. & Lauron H. ,Lambeth
He has my support.
Carole W. ,Lambeth
We support you in Lambeth for what you are doing.
You are very brave, at least you tried something !
We believe in what you have tried to do. You have our wholehearted support !
The future of policing. Bring him back.
Richard C., Bristol
The first policeman with a positive approach to soft drugs. Bring him back.
Diane K. ,Lambeth
The right man for the right job – bring him back now !!
Let’s have him back !
Lambeth needs a man like this.
Andrew G., SE24
Wishing for a speedy return.
Joanne W., SW2
Come back all is forgiven.
Tom W., SW9
Bring him back !
Policing relevant to local wishes gets my support !
Look forward to having him back !
Nicky W., Streatham.
