According to this, the Met police has launched something called Project Gamerz with XLeague.TV, an initiative designed to keep involved with the community instead of selling it crack or burning it down.

“The aim of the project is to enable young people to re-connect with their local community in a way that reflects their interests,” said Sergeant Rob Evans. “By creating this social network we hope to encourage responsible participation across the age group, where we can also engage with local youngsters on policing and community issues that can affect them.”

Anyone aged between 11 and 18, who lives or attends school in the Riverside Ward of Rotherhithe, is being invited to come along to The Salmon Youth Centre in Bermondsey up to March 28, after which the scheme will be rolled out on a large scale across Bermondsey.

We stayed in a flat in Bermondsey once after a very heavy night. Games aren’t going to save it. And you so should have put a capital “Z” in “Gamerz”, police people.
