Your views on policing and crime in London
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.
On this page you can see how the plan is developing, read the latest draft and find out how you can get involved.
Stage 1: 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.
Here's a snapshot of what we found:
Stage 2: Formal consultation
Policing and Crime: the draft plan
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.
