London Is Open. Terrorists May Try To Convince Us Otherwise But They Will Not Succeed

We are both great global cities and financial centres. London and New York are home to big, vibrant and complex populations.

'The Met: Policing London' - A Powerful And Intimate Way To Show The Public How We Police The Capital

This week will see the broadcast of series two of the primetime BBC1 documentary <em>The Met: Policing London</em>. This is a powerful and intimate way to allow the public behind the scenes of the Met. In an organisation of more than 45,000 people and with tactics and jobs that have to remain confidential it can't show everything. However, it is an opportunity that we welcome to give the public we serve more insight in to how we police London's streets.
