The Metropolitan Police

  • Ian Oliver


The Metropolitan Police is approximately five times larger than any other UK force, with a workforce of approximately 40000 officers and civilian personnel. It was inaugurated on 29 September 1829 and, by virtue of its originating statute, the Metropolitan Police Act 1829, it is under the direction of ‘one of His Majesty’s Principal Secretaries of State’ (the Home Secretary) who is the police authority.
