Sadiq Khan plans to restore the reputation of MET
London mayor Sadiq Khan has published a plan to restore the reputation of the Met Police.
According to reports, public trust in the force hit a record low.
From the BBC. the most recent figures indicate only half of London’s population believe the Met does a good job.
Ending violence against women and girls has been identified as a priority.
Mr. Khan said: “Tackling crime and making London safer is my number one priority.
“Thanks to our relentless efforts over recent years and record investment from City Hall, violent crime continues to fall.
“But there’s still much more to do to prevent violence and to stop the terrible loss of young lives in our city.”
The document sets out a three-year plan to showcase ideas of the reforms needed within the Met Police.
Nearly 4,000 people took part in the consultation.
The mayor’s office said it will highlight “misogynistic attitudes and behaviours and encourage men to challenge sexism and misogyny whenever they see it”.
Claire Waxman, London’s independent victim commissioner said the plan “rightly prioritizes the rights and needs of victims”.
She added: “I am also pleased to see clear acknowledgment that public trust and confidence have been damaged and urgently need to be rebuilt.
Jas Athwal, London Councils’ executive member for crime and public protection, said: “London needs a police service that is fair, trusted, diverse and effective.
“We welcome the expectations on radically improving the Metropolitan Police’s culture and practices to urgently build back trust and confidence, particularly among women and ethnic minority communities.
