Annual Report

The City of London is a place like no other in the UK; redolent of history, its narrow streets are home to some of the most significant companies in the world. As one of the global financial powerhouses, its population is richly diverse; almost 400,000 people travel to the City each day to work while approximately 9000 residents from every social group and background call the City home. It boasts St Paul’s Cathedral, the Barbican, a cultural centre of international standing, several universities, five schools, a vibrant night-time economy and extensive shopping outlets. It is easy to forget that geographically, it covers just over a square mile. 

As the police force for the nation’s financial heart our core mission is to protect the UK from economic crime and maintain the City of London as one of the safest cities in the world. We do this by upholding the law fairly and firmly, whether this is within the City or nationally in our role as lead police force for fraud, we protect and reassure communities – locally and across the UK, investigate crime and bring offenders to justice. 

Policing this space brings with it challenges and privileges, and in 2015/2016, the City of London Police met those challenges with characteristic determination, continually striving to achieve excellence. Over the past 12 months, the force exceeded its commitments; locally within the Square Mile, and nationally in the fight against fraud and economic crime. Harnessing the force values of integrity, fairness and professionalism, we are proud to have delivered an exceptional policing service.
