Crime – big questions for the Mayor

30 October 2019

At 890,233 - the number of notifiable offences over the year to the end of August 2019 increased by 7.1 per cent, compared to the previous twelve months. [1]

This is despite the fact that crime in London remains lower than a decade ago.


Tomorrow, the London Assembly will question:


  • Sadiq Khan - Mayor of London 
  • Dame Cressida Dick DBE QPM - Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis


Various London policing matters will be discussed, including:


  • Challenges over the next year
  • Recent lessons learnt
  • Policing support for human rights


Following this, Assembly Members will submit motions on various topics.


The meeting will take place on Thursday, 31 October from 10:00am in The Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).
