My Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime scrutinised the Met’s arrest and sanction performance at the MPS – MOPAC Oversight Board on 29 November 2018.

The Met is committed to doing all it can to bring offenders to justice in the whole of London. With the implementation of MI investigation all frontline Police Officers are being developed to be effective crime investigators, being upskilled by Detectives whilst allowing C.I.D officers to focus on serious/complex crimes.

In January 2019, the MPS Commissioner and I set out plans to spend £85 million of new City Hall funding to tackle violent crime and burglary in the capital. There will be a major boost for Met Trace, the Met’s flagship burglary prevention programme which involves officers visiting homes to provide Londoners with crime prevention advice and delivering property-marking kits, which will significantly widen coverage and protect homes across the capital. Local police will continue to focus on work to prevent burglary and target those responsible and the additional funding will also support increased proactivity to both prevent and detect burglary.
