Met Police acting commissioner questioned on workforce culture and restoring public confidence

19 April 2022

The Home Affairs Committee examines the work of the Metropolitan Police on Wednesday 20 April when it takes evidence from Acting Commissioner Sir Stephen House and Assistant Commissioner Louisa Rolfe. 

Dame Cressida Dick recently resigned as Commissioner of the Met following criticism from the Mayor of London and a series of high profile failings in the force. Public confidence has been severely damaged by incident including the murder of Sarah Everard and policing of the subsequent vigil, misconduct at Charing Cross police station and the Child Q case. 

Purpose of the session

The Home Affairs Committee will question the senior officers on current work being carried out to ensure improvements in the workforce culture and community confidence in policing. It will investigate what lessons have been learnt from recent failures and what new measures have been put in place to improve safeguarding, as well as addressing misconduct among officers and staff.

At 9.45am

  • Sir Stephen House QPM, M.A., MBA, Acting Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service
