Who we are
About the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC)
One of the Mayor’s key responsibilities is overseeing the work of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) – setting the priorities for policing and community safety in London, agreeing the policing budget and holding the Met Commissioner to account for delivering a professional, efficient and effective service to Londoners.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has appointed Sophie Linden as Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC) to oversee this vital work. Sadiq has also appointed Claire Waxman OBE to become London’s first independent Victims’ Commissioner, ensuring that the victim’s voice is at the heart of everything we do.
At the heart of our work is the Mayor’s Police and Crime Plan – a statutory document that sets out the key priorities for the term ahead, how we will work to deliver them and how we will oversee delivery.
