Mayor urges Londoners of all backgrounds to join the Met
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is calling on Londoners to join the Police service in London to help create a bigger and better Met and keep our city safe.
On a visit to a recruitment stall at W12 Shopping Centre in Shepherds Bush, the Mayor today urged Londoners of all backgrounds to join the Met so they can bring their range of experiences and skills to help others, and be the change they want to see in the force.
The Met currently has its highest ever numbers of police officers in the capital, and is undergoing a recruitment drive to encourage 4,000 more officers to join in the next year. The Met has also agreed challenging targets to increase recruitment of people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds and ensure those officers progress to become sergeants and inspectors.
The Mayor and the Met are committed to building a police force that looks and feels like the city it serves, which is vital in keeping London safe for everyone and rebuilding trust in Londoners.
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, said: “Keeping Londoners safe is my top priority, and I am working closely with the police to encourage Londoners from all backgrounds to join a bigger and better Met Police service.
“I am determined to increase the trust and confidence that all our communities have in the police, which is why it is so important that we have a service that reflects the diversity of the city it serves. I want the Met to represent us all and urge Londoners of all backgrounds to apply to become a police officer and help be the change you want to see. I’m really proud that we now have more police officers than at any other time in London’s history and by joining the police you can help to impact so many lives for the better.”
