City Hall

Our public scrutiny meetings

MOPAC holds regular public meetings to hold the Metropolitan Police Service and criminal justice partners to account, and ensure everything possible is being done to meet the Mayor’s priorities and objectives and to keep Londoners safe.

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime host the 'Policing Matters' and 'Justice Matters' meetings at regular intervals throughout the year, bringing in the Metropolitan Police Service, criminal justice agencies and other key partners to discuss the issues that matter to the safety of Londoners.

All Policing Matters and Justice Matters meetings are held at City Hall. They are open to the public to attend in person or can be viewed live.

Disproportionality - 13 March 2018

On Tuesday 13 March at 10am MOPAC will be hosting a Justice Matters round table discussion meeting on disproportionality within policing and the criminal justice system in London. It follows on from important work already undertaken, including the Young and Lammy reviews, both covering racial inequality in the criminal justice system. The meeting will be split into two parts focussing on the wider criminal justice service generally and then on policing in particular.  The purpose will be to understand and discuss the nature of disproportionality and agree and take forward practical actions for how improvements can be achieved for Criminal Justice agencies, communities and individuals alike.

Knife Crime - 23 March 2018

On Friday 23 March at 10am MOPAC will be hosting a Justice Matters round table discussion meeting on Knife Crime.  The purpose of the meeting will be to review the current profile of knife crime, discuss what a public health approach to violence reduction is, calibrate our learning and understand what is already happening in London and agree practical actions in support of the Knife Crime Strategy.  The meeting will be split into three parts: enforcement activity; diversion initiatives to provide positive opportunities as alternatives for those involved in or at risk of carrying a knife or perpetrating knife related violence and, thirdly, to consider preventative work to protect and educate young people.
