A safer city for all Londoners

The Mayor Sadiq Khan has published the new Police and Crime Plan for London which sets out his priorities for the safety of London.

We worked closely with Londoners and partner organisations to understand issues that are important to them, and identified five top priorities in London:

  • A better police service for London
  • A better Criminal Justice Service for London
  • Keeping children and young people safe
  • Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls
  • Standing together against hatred and intolerance

The Plan includes measures to tackle these issues, reduce crime and disorder in London and improve police services across the city.

The safety of all Londoners is my first priority, and our city is one of the safest in the world thanks to the hard work and dedication of our police officers. But I want it to be even safer. I want every Londoner, regardless of age or background, to have trust and confidence in their local officers and feel that their local concerns are being met, whoever they are and wherever they live. 

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
