Sadiq Khan – 2022 Comments on a Diverse Metropolitan Police

The comments made by Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, on 22 April 2022.

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.
