A better Police Service for London

Wherever you live in the capital, and whatever your background, you should expect the same service from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).

Providing the best service to all Londoners is at the heart of the Police and Crime Plan and means getting the important things right: making communities safer, responding to and preventing crime, building trust and confidence, and bringing criminals to justice.

What are we doing?

To make the police service in London better we are:

  • Providing police services where and when Londoners need them – in their communities, on the move, online, at night and at work
  • Making sure victims and vulnerable people receive more protection
  • Transforming the Metropolitan Police Service, making it fit for the 21st century
  • Ensuring that the MPS meets its national and international strategic policing requirements
