Have your say! MOPAC consultation on accessing Met Police services

MOPAC CONSULTATION on accessing Met Police services

Including public meeting…

Please help spread the word!

The Met Police have had to find £600m of savings and must save a further £400m by 2020.

The Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has published draft plans to close costly and underused police front counters in London and provide better ways to contact the Met online. 

Doing this would help to meet growing public demand to be able to access Met Police services from smartphones, tablets and computers, whilst saving £10mill that could be spent instead on frontline policing.
