Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) are in the process of developing the strategy to improve public access to the police. Once complete it will be put before the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime for approval.

The strategy, once approved will support the Police and Crime Plan.

No decisions on public access will be made until the strategy is approved by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime.
