London Assembly Police and Crime Committee

The London Assembly scrutinises the work of the MOPAC through its Police and Crime Committee.

The London Assembly Police and Crime Committee (P&CC) examines the work of the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime and reviews the Police and Crime Plan for London. It holds monthly meetings where Members ask topical questions of the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime and the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police or his deputy. It also undertakes more in-depth scrutiny work into issues such as improving victim care and community safety funding.

The Committee can also investigate anything which it considers to be of importance to policing and crime reduction in Greater London and make recommendations for improvements. It tends to do this via thematic reviews (see recent reports below).

It has the power to require the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, and staff from the MOPAC, to attend meetings and provide documents to it. When the Mayor nominates a person to become the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, the committee will review that persons eligibility for the role.

The committee's meetings are almost all open to the public, and are held at City Hall.
