Police and Crime Plan

The Police and Crime Plan 2013-2016 outlines the Mayor’s mission, priorities and objectives for tackling crime and making London safer.

It is for MOPAC to hold the Metropolitan Police Service and criminal justice partners to account and deliver against these objectives by 2016.

The plan was informed by the best evidence around effective crime reduction and the strategy is built on clear objectives to be achieved. An extensive consultation was undertaken in early 2013. This included town hall meetings in all 32 London boroughs, additional stakeholder forums, focus groups, a large online survey conducted by TNS, and the completion of an Equalities Impact Assessment.

The plan proposed clear performance measures that focus on results, not process or activity, including the 20:20:20 Policing and Criminal Justice Challenges:

  • 20% reduction in key neighbourhood crimes (250,000 fewer crimes)
  • 20% reduction in costs (£500m savings)
  • 20% increase in confidence in the met police (Up to 75%)
  • 20% reduction in delays in the criminal justice system
  • 20% increase in compliance with community sentences
  • 20% reduction in reoffending by young people leaving custody

The MPS has published updated public access and deployment maps for each of the London boroughs. You can view these alongside the Policing and Public Access in London document below.
