The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and New York Police Commissioner, Bill Bratton, have joined together to highlight the progress of both cities in fighting crime.
In 2014 both cities had their best year on homicides since the 1960s. London’s murder total was just 92 in 2014 – half of what it was in 1991, when London had 2 million fewer residents. New York has seen even more dramatic reductions in homicide down from 2,245 in 1992 to 333 last year.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has today confirmed that all serving special constables who live in the capital will be eligible for a £150 council tax cut, as he delivers on his pledge to reward those uniformed volunteers who support policing.

Specialist youth workers, dealing directly with young victims of gang crime, will be placed in every hospital major trauma centre (MTCs) to support victims and reduce youth violence in London under the major expansion of a ground-breaking project announced today.
