Police and Crime Plan

Delivering the Mayor’s policing plan

25 January 2017
  • Will the plan help to deliver a better criminal justice service to victims and offenders?
  • How confident can we be that what is set out in the plan is achievable?
  • How will the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) make its judgement about the performance of the Met as a whole?
  • Without a fair funding deal from the Government, what in the plan is at risk?

The Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Sophie Linden, and the Deputy Commissioner, Craig Mackey will face questions from the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee about the Mayor’s Draft Police and Crime Plan tomorrow.

The Committee will also explore the Mayor’s proposals for criminal justice, including better support for victims of crime and greater control of the criminal justice system.

The draft plan sets out priorities for MOPAC during the Mayor’s time in office. This session will help to shape the Committee’s response to the plan, which will be submitted to MOPAC in February.
