Statement from London Assembly Police and Crime Committee on the Met Commissioner appointment, London Assembly 22nd February

The new Metropolitan Police Commissioner has today been named as Cressida Dick.

The London Assembly Police and Crime Committee welcomes her to the role.

Steve O’Connell AM, Chair of the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee said:

“On behalf of the Committee I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome the new Commissioner.

London faces challenging times; the terrorism threat level for the UK remains at severe; violent crimes among young people are rising; and increasingly complex and serious offences are placing new demands on officers.

These challenges come at a time when London’s population continues to grow, and the funding available to the Met is expected to shrink.

We look forward to meeting the Commissioner and hearing the plans she has for taking the country’s biggest police force forward and confronting the demands ahead.”
