New Sector Policing in City of London

Feel safe in your City

New Local Policing Model in the City What does that imply? Only positive news-increased presence on the streets of police officers and local awareness that empowers more community security and faster action.

“Dedicated ward officers, known to the community, will be focussing on local issues that matter most to you. This is a key step to re-establish real neighbourhood policing. It will mean stronger relations between our residents and their police officers, where local communities are served by dedicated officers they know and trust, and who understand the area and people within it.”Ray Marskell, Chief Inspector, City of London Police
