New board to oversee reform of the Met Police

London Mayor Sadiq Khan is setting up the London Policing Board to provide oversight and scrutiny of reform following on from Dame Louise Casey’s damning report into the culture of the Met Police. The new Board is part of a package of measures by the Mayor to accelerate the root and branch reforms of the Met’s performance and culture so that every community in London can feel protected and served. 

Londoners are invited to apply to join the Board, with the Mayor seeking members from across London’s diverse communities embracing a range of expertise and lived experience. The Board, which will meet in public four times per year, will provide high-level specialist advice, challenge and support to assist the Mayor in holding the Commissioner of the Met to account on behalf of Londoners.    

Members will receive remuneration of £15,000 p.a. for 15 – 20 days’ commitment per annum. Applications close on 3 July.
