Service takes the lead for protests outside of the City, including
Both forces will continue to work together, and will liaise with
protestors, the Cathedral and local businesses to provide an
appropriate policing response.
City of London Police Assistant Commissioner Frank Armstrong
“We have had a low-key policing response to this protest
throughout, and our approach continues to be to remain impartial,
maintain the peace and prevent crime.
“While we’ll now take sole responsibility for the St Paul’s
protest, we’ll still be working very closely with the Metropolitan
Police in the coming weeks. The two forces sit side-by-side and
work closely together on many high-profile operations, and that
will continue to be the case.”
The City of
London Police and the Metropolitan Police Service continue to
police protests in City.
The police are
constantly assessing the situation, and continue to liaise with
protestors, the Cathedral and local businesses to provide low key
policing that faciliates peaceful protest while minimising
disruption to the local community.
Businesses who require security advice about their premises

If any member of the community has any questions regarding the
policing operation please

14 October 2011
There is expected to be a protest in the City of London on
Saturday afternoon (15th October 2011).
The City of London Police, working jointly with the Metropolitan
Police Service and British Transport Police, has an appropriate
policing response in place for the protest.
We have a duty not just to provide a proportionate response but
to minimise the potential disruption to Londoners going about their
business. With this in mind, City of London Police officers have
been liaising with businesses and landowners in the area.
We would always encourage people planning a demonstration to
contact us so we can try to assist - we are attempting to make
contact with their representatives and would urge them to get in
touch with us.
Those planning the demonstration have stated that their
intention is to hold a peaceful protest, which we welcome. However
we will deal swiftly with anyone who breaks the law or plans to
break the law under the guise of protest.
During the day, as necessary, there will be updates on the force
website and via Twitter @CO11MetPolice.
