1. We will work to eliminate police perpetrated domestic abuse and sexual offences and we will improve the effectiveness of our response to these crimes.
2. We will improve how we listen to those impacted by Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG). We will involve them in our plans, introduce external scrutiny of VAWG cases, and share more data with the public. We will take specific action to understand how we can improve engagement with Black and minoritised women and girls, taking into account the needs of different age groups and the impact of intersectionality.
3. We will demonstrably prioritise Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) by investing resources to improve capacity and capability. This means having the right number of officers and staff in the right places (capacity) and the right skills, equipment and training to best protect women and girls wherever you work in the Met (capability).
4. We will tackle sexism and misogyny in the Met. We will implement a new programme to transform the Met’s culture, with specific focus on sexism and misogyny.
5. We will look outside the Met for ways to improve our response to Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) and we will be innovative and precise. We will test new approaches, learn what works and tackle gaps in our data.
Relentless pursuit of perpetrators
6. We will do much more to identify and tackle the most dangerous and prolific perpetrators of VAWG.
7. We will make better use of police powers to protect women and girls from perpetrators, such as civil orders and protection orders. We will work closely with partners to explore and maximise the use of wider powers such as public space protection orders and community orders to reduce offending and offer better public protection to women and girls.
8. We will take action to improve support and care for victim survivors of domestic abuse and other VAWG offences through the criminal justice process to ensure a consistent and compassionate service everywhere in London.
9. We will identify high risk and high harm locations for VAWG. We will target resources to those places to improve the safety of women and girls in London’s public spaces.
10. We will focus on preventing VAWG through our 'Strongest Ever Neighbourhoods' programme, including prevention work in schools and with young people to protect them and reduce harmful behaviours in private, in public and online.
