More challenges. More excitement. More opportunities. New inspectors. Be at the heart of a changing service.


London is changing, the expectations of Londoners are changing and the Met Police is changing too.

This is an exciting time to be working for the Met. In addition to large-scale transformation, there’s the unique and ever evolving challenge of policing London. This means that as an inspector, you will need to provide strong leadership and management in a time of unprecedented change within the UK’s largest Police Service.

The Met is going through the most significant period of change it has ever experienced. Against this backdrop, the role of inspector in the Met is also changing. Now, more than ever, we need individuals at the inspector rank, who can instil confidence and trust in officers, teams, partners and the wider community. We are looking for candidates who have a strong track record of delivery in a variety of environments. This includes an ability to work to corporate and local objectives within a culture of change, as well as managing their resources effectively.

As a leader, you’ll face a number of challenges including dramatic crime reduction, ensuring that our policing style meets community expectations, and maintaining effective policing against a changing economic climate.

This career opportunity is open to exceptional sergeants looking for promotion. Inspectors with a proven track record of effective delivery are also encouraged to apply. This will be an extremely competitive process with only the highest calibre of individuals being selected.
