Before you get in touch, please read the advice below. We’ve included links to several documents that provide more detail about filming, if you need it.
Filming on location
There are seven types of filming on location that will likely require a police presence. These are filming:
with replica, imitation or airsoft firearms
with actors or extras in police uniform
with replica or fake police vehicles
scenes of crime or violence
real or perceived nudity
with issues of public safety
Download our Guidelines for filming on location in London (see below) for more information on each.
Filming on the move
