The safety of Londoners is Mayor Sadiq Khan’s first priority. He is preparing a Police and Crime Plan with the help of Londoners, the Metropolitan Police, our stakeholders and service providers. This important plan will set out our priorities for making London a safer city.

Policing and Crime: the draft plan

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan speaks with a police officer at Liverpool Street station

The Mayor, Sadiq Khan, is committed to ending the 'postcode lottery' in public safety. This means that some people and places are more vulnerable to, and fearful of crime than others - so we will be focused on tackling particular, local problems, while making sure that all Londoners receive a high standard of service.

As well as ensuring there are clear standards of service the public can expect from the police and the criminal justice service, the Mayor has identified three new London-wide commitments:

  • keeping children and young people safe
  • tackling violence against women and girls
  • and standing together against extremism, hatred and intolerance

The draft Policing and Crime strategy includes measures to tackle these issues, as well as plans to crack down on knife crime and improve victims services.

Performance Framework

In this draft plan, we propose a new framework of how we measure performance. We want to ensure that there will be London-wide performance measures on London-wide priorities set by the Mayor such as tackling violence against women and girls, and keeping children and young people safe.

We also want to give flexibility to local areas and ensure that police priorities are set locally and based on evidence and data. This chimes with what partners, such as yourselves, have been telling us.

For Boroughs, it ensures ownership of policing priorities and performance. For the MPS, it strengthens links and accountability to their local community. Throughout the consultation period MOPAC will discussing this change and how to implement with councils and the MPS in each Borough. We have been in touch with every London borough about this and discussing this with them.

A draft of the performance framework outlines volume priorities that can be set locally and the proposed frameworks for the Mayor’s priorities beyond local policing.

The Talk London Survey

We asked Londoners to share their views on policing and crime by taking part in a survey on Talk London (26 October - 16 November). These helpful viewpoints have now been reviewed and incorporated into the plan.
