1. Overview

Our mission is to make London a safer place for everyone. As a PC, you’ll have the opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of Londoners every day; from building relationships with local communities, reducing crime, supporting victims and keeping people safe. No day is ever the same, but you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that what you do has made a real difference to the lives of Londoners.

You won’t be alone, becoming a police officer in the Met means joining the police family. You will work collaboratively with and be supported by your fellow officers as well as the wider Met.

As the biggest police service in the UK serving a city as diverse as London there is a wide variety of units and specialisms that you could go into. From working in diplomatic protection, training in public order to police various demonstrations and events, to working in cybercrime. There really are no limits to where a career in the Met can take you.

We are looking for people from all backgrounds, with diverse skills and experiences to join; so that we can better represent the communities we serve. Someone who shares our values of professionalism, integrity, courage and compassion. Someone who wants to make a difference.

Someone like you.
