Online services and alerts

The City of London has a relatively small residential population of around 10,000, but with over 400,000 daily commuting workers, four million tourists visiting each year, and a flourishing nightlife; it provides a unique challenge to those policing The Square Mile. Overall crime levels in the City are amongst the lowest in the UK; however, that does not mean that the City of London Police is complacent when it comes to tackling criminality and the concerns of residents, businesses and workers are very important. As a global financial centre the continuing threats to the City from terrorism and fraud-related crime remain constant; City Alert plays an important role in the maintenance of good order and crime prevention, and a key role in the event of a major incident.
