The Mayor’s Office of Policing and Crime (MOPAC) was established on 16 January 2012. It is led by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, supported (since 1 June 2012) by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC), Stephen Greenhalgh.
The Mayor, as occupant of MOPAC has several key roles, most importantly, setting the strategic direction and accountability for policing. In this role, the Mayor has extensive financial responsibilities. He is responsible for setting a budget for policing and has considerable powers to commission services and provide crime and disorder grants. The Mayor also works with partners to prevent and tackle crime and re-offending. The Mayor contributes to resourcing of the policing response to regional and national threats and ensures that London is able to play its part in respect of the Home Secretary’s “strategic policing requirement”.
MOPAC staff discharge a broad range of statutory duties and are directly accountable to the Mayor and Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime in delivering their agenda for London. We are dedicated to building a professional, highly skilled workforce that will deliver the Police and Crime Plan for London. The Office is led at official level by a Chief Operating Officer, Helen Bailey, who has recently restructured the organisation to deliver the recently launched Police and Crime Plan.
There are currently no vacancies being advertised.
