Off the Cuff - Podcast

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

Here at the City of London Police, we’re always keen to try something new, 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.

We want to share some stories of the men and women ‘behind the badge’, and to give you real insight on what makes police officers – and a police force – tick.

As well as officer interviews, this series of podcasts will feature historical pieces, and offbeat stories which might usually go uncovered. Each of these stories will give you an intimate and honest glimpse at the real City of London Police – our values, our identity, and our people.
