In the public access strategy it states on page 17 "we will be publishing an engagement strategy next year". When is the engagement strategy likely to come out, and will there be a second public consultation on it?

Answer for Public Engagement Strategy

Answered By:

We heard a number of views through the consultation about how the public feel the police should engage. We now need to build on this and spend some valuable time working with our partners and the Assembly to develop what this might look like.


It would have been ineffectual to seek to rush this work to publish alongside the public access strategy which is why the two were decoupled.

We would not seek to publish any strategy of this kind without the input of the experts, our partners and stakeholders, and the public. As I've said, we've already had considerable input from Londoners, but we acknowledge that there is more to do.

Over the next few months we will be engaging with colleagues, including the Assembly, to define the Met's engagement offer to the public.
