The Met is inviting Londoners to visit their local police stations this Sunday for a special day of behind-the-scenes tours.
Visitors will be able to talk to local senior officers about policing in their area as well as seeing some of the specialist units, equipment and resources the Met has at its disposal.
Stations will be open between 10:00hrs and 16:00hrs and a list of participating sites is available on local borough police web pages and via local police Twitter accounts.
Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: “I want the Met to be an open organisation. We are accountable to the public. These open days symbolise that openness – and I hope people enjoy looking around their local station.
“We are very clear that we are here to serve London and by inviting the public into our police stations we can give an insight to our daily work to keep them safe and tackle criminals.
“I’d urge all Londoners to visit one of the police stations which is opening near them on the day and learn more about the Met.”
