Off the Cuff - Podcast

Welcome to Off the Cuff , the City of London Police podcast.

Here at the City of London Police, we have a history of trying new things, so we've recorded a series of interviews with officers and staff from across the force to shed some light on what goes on behind the scenes at a busy, modern police force.

​​​EPISODE FOUR – Sgt Pete Lucas on why policing is like a family, and various other metaphors..!

In our fourth episode, we hear from City of London Police Sgt Pete Lucas. Pete describes his work with the local communities of the Square Mile, the friendly family rivalry which abounds around his own dinner table, and the strong sense of social justice which brought him into this line of work.

Pete also reflects on what he's learnt is his many years as an officer, and what he thinks is the key to better relationships between police forces and the communities they serve.​
