Police and Crime Plan

Is MOPAC’s Commissioning programme working?

21 January 2020

With increased devolution of funding streams from the Government and more investment from the Mayor, the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime (MOPAC) has taken responsibility for operating local, sub-regional and regional commissioning models to deliver services.  This has led to MOPAC’s commissioning budget increasing significantly to £53.6 million for 2019/20.  

Programmes currently commissioned by MOPAC include:

•    The London Crime Prevention Fund
•    The Co-Commissioning Fund
•    The MOPAC Victims’ Fund
•    The MOPAC Integrated Victims and Witnesses Service

Tomorrow, the London Assembly Police & Crime Committee will discuss MOPAC’s commissioning activities and the effectiveness of MOPAC’s programmes.

The guests are:

Panel 1

  • Sherry Peck, Chief Executive of Safer London
  • John Trend, Director of Oxygen

Panel 2

  • Sam Cunningham, Director of Criminal Justice Services, MOPAC
  • Tom Burnham, Head of Policy and Commissioning, MOPAC

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 22 January 2020 from 10.00am in Committee 5 at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).

Media and members of the public are invited to attend

The meeting can also be viewed LIVE via webcast or on our YouTube channel.
