Annual Report

Welcome to our new, online annual report on the achievements of the City of London Police in 2017/2018.

The year was dominated by terrorist activity in London and Manchester, requiring an intense policing response.  City of London Police officers played a role in most of the incidents; standing up our casualty bureau following the attacks in Westminster, Manchester Arena and London Bridge; dispatching firearms officers for two of the London incidents and we were a key player in the resolution of one of the London attacks.  Our response placed the force at full stretch, with everyone involved from City Police showing remarkable commitment.  We worked seamlessly with the other two London forces, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and British Transport Police (BTP), to keep London safe. HMICFRS commented in their effectiveness report of January 2018: ‘there can be little doubt that City of London Police’s ability to respond to terrorist attacks within minutes and the bravery of the officers involved has saved lives.’

I was very proud of our officers at this time, and in December we held the first tri-force commendation ceremony at the Guildhall, where I was joined by the Commissioner of the MPS and BTP’s Chief Constable, to recognise the exceptional men and women of London’s police forces.
