Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) records the number of police officers who identify themselves as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) as part of the diversity monitoring of its workforce.

This information is self-declared by officers and the MPS and MOPAC seek to provide an environment where every member of the workforce feels confident to provide it.
