Leadership Strategy & Delivery Manager
The Metropolitan Police Service is the biggest police service in the UK ensuring the safety and security of a thriving economic, cultural and technological capital.

And as one of the most visited cities in the world, London swells even further by an influx of daily commuters, tourists and visitors throughout the year. Ensuring the safety of London’s population and meeting the needs of each of these communities is a hugely complex and challenging task. It is the role of Met’s 45,000 Warranted Officers, Community Support Officers, Special Constables and Support Staff to ensure that communities across one of the world’s premier cities are safe as they go about their business, whether at home, at work or visiting.
