Police and Crime Plan 2013-2016

Police and Crime Plan

Having set the Plan, MOPAC holds the Metropolitan Police Service and criminal justice partners to account for achieving its objectives.

The current Plan was informed by extensive public consultation which was undertaken in early 2013. This included town hall meetings in all 32 London boroughs, additional stakeholder forums, focus groups, a large online survey conducted by TNS, and the completion of an Equalities Impact Assessment.

The Plan sets out measures that focus on results, not process or activity, including the 20:20:20 Policing and Criminal Justice Challenges:

  • 20% reduction in key neighbourhood crimes (250,000 fewer crimes)
  • 20% reduction in costs (£500m savings)
  • 20% increase in confidence in the met police (Up to 75%)
  • 20% reduction in delays in the criminal justice system
  • 20% increase in compliance with community sentences
  • 20% reduction in reoffending by young people leaving custody

The way people want to access the police has changed and we have moved on from a world where in order to speak to an officer you had to visit a police station. The Policing & Public Acess in London document sets out the changes that we are making to our territorial, or neighbourhood, policing estate to support our plans and outlines the promise we are making to London.

More details about our specific plans can be found in the Local Police Estate & Public Access documents and the maps for each borough below.

Estates Strategy

Linked to the Police and Crime Plan is the new MOPAC/MPS Estates Strategy 2013-16.

Details regarding the disposal of sites that have been deemed surplus to requirements in accordance with the Estates Strategy can be found below.

Annual report

MOPAC public scrutiny meetings

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime host the 'Policing Matters' and 'Justice Matters' public scrutiny 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. It is also the principal mechanism through which it holds the Met Commissioner and his top team to public account for the delivery of the Police and Crime Plan.
