Former head of Surrey Police is named new Met Police Commissioner following on from Cressida Dick


The Home Secretary Priti Patel has today announced the appointment of Sir Mark Rowley as the new Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service

Sir Mark was formally appointed by Her Majesty the Queen following a recommendation from the Home Secretary, after a highly competitive recruitment process. Representations from the Mayor of London were considered by the Home Secretary as part of this recommendation.

At a time when the Government is investing record sums into policing, including supporting the recruitment of 20,000 additional police officers across England and Wales, the new Commissioner will need to focus on getting the basics right, restoring confidence in policing, delivering on the Beating Crime Plan and making our capital’s streets safer.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said:

“Sir Mark Rowley is a distinguished and exceptionally experienced police officer, having served the people of the West Midlands and Surrey before guiding the capital through some of its most challenging moments in the wake of the 2017 terror attacks, as the Met’s then head of counter-terrorism.

“He now takes on one of the most important and demanding jobs in policing, leading the country’s largest force at a time when public trust in the Metropolitan Police has been severely undermined by a number of significant failings. Rebuilding public trust and delivering on crime reduction must be his priority.

“This will be a challenging period, but with a focus on tackling neighbourhood crime and delivering the basics of policing, Sir Mark is committed to tackling the significant challenges confronting the force and to making London’s streets safer by driving down crime and bringing more criminals to justice.

“As the largest police force in the country, we have supported the Met to recruit 2,599 extra police officers and increased their annual policing budget to £3.24 billion in 2022-23. I look forward to working closely with Sir Mark to ensure this investment drives essential change to ensure the force delivers for the people of London.”

Responding to his appointment, Sir Mark Rowley said:

“I feel deeply honoured to be appointed to be the next Metropolitan Police Commissioner. Our mission is to lead the renewal of policing by consent which has been so heavily dented in recent years as trust and confidence have fallen.

“I am grateful that the Home Secretary and Mayor are both determined to support the urgent reforms we need to deliver successful community crimefighting in today’s fast moving world. These reforms include our use of technology and data, our culture and our policing approach. We will fight crime with communities – not unilaterally dispense tactics.

“I also know that the majority of officers and staff retain an extraordinary sense of vocation and determination and want us to do better. It is my job to help them do that, whilst also being ruthless in removing those who are corrupting our integrity.

“We will deliver more trust, less crime and high standards for London and beyond and we will work with London’s diverse communities as we together renew the uniquely British invention of ‘policing by consent’.”

The date of Sir Mark’s first day in the role will be confirmed in due course.

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said:

“The Home Secretary and I have agreed that Sir Mark Rowley is the best person to lead the Metropolitan Police as the new Commissioner at this extremely challenging time.

“A series of appalling scandals have not only exposed deep cultural problems within the Met, but have contributed to a crisis of confidence in London’s police service. Sir Mark has made clear to me that he is determined to be a reforming Commissioner, committed to implementing a robust plan to rebuild trust and confidence in the police and to drive through the urgent reforms and step change in culture and performance Londoners deserve. As Mayor, I will support and hold him to these promises as I continue to hold the Met to account.

“Sir Mark has demonstrated to me that he is the outstanding candidate for this role. He brings a wealth of great experience to the position, including exceptional leadership during the 2017 terror attacks and a genuine commitment to increasing engagement with diverse communities across our city. The experience he has gained outside policing over the last four years will also bring a valuable new perspective to the Met. Above all, he is committed to policing by consent and shares my ambition to get to a place where all Londoners feel protected and served, and where we have a police force that everyone – including the many brave and dedicated officers in our city – can be proud of.

“I look forward to supporting Sir Mark Rowley and working closely with the Home Secretary as we work to restore trust and confidence in the police, ensure that the Met gets the basics of policing right, and build on the significant success we have made in driving down violence and crime in our city.”

Acting Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service Sir Stephen House added:

“I would like to congratulate Sir Mark Rowley QPM on his appointment as Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis.

“Anyone who knows Sir Mark will be aware that he brings extensive policing experience from both inside and outside London, which I have no doubt will benefit London and Londoners.”

Biography of Sir Mark Rowley

Sir Mark Peter Rowley QPM was Chief Constable of Surrey Police for four years (2008-2011) before joining the Metropolitan Police Service in 2011. Sir Mark was a former Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Crime and Operations of the Metropolitan Police Service (2011- 2014), and then National Police Chiefs' Council Lead for Counter-Terrorism (2014- 2018). He was knighted in 2018 for his exceptional contribution to national security and national leadership at a time of unprecedented threat.

Sir Mark Rowley’s career in policing spans over 30 years, during which time he has transformed national security and policing. As Chief Constable, he lifted the public confidence levels in Surrey to the highest in the country. After joining the Metropolitan Police Service, Sir Mark transformed the approach to UK counter-terrorism and policing gangs, increasing community engagement and workforce diversity, leading the police response to the London terror attacks of 2017 and reducing shootings and murders in London to an all-time low. He also led reform in policing of public order, organised crime and fraud, launching the 200 strong Op Falcon team to combat the growth of online fraud and cybercrime.

Since leaving policing in 2018 he has worked in specialist security projects and on technology/data led transformation with ‘start-ups’ and the world’s largest professional services company. He has focused on: countering extremism and racism, online safety, institutional integrity and illicit finance.

Boris Johnson's standing down as prime minister - South West London and North Surrey reactions

Downing Street says he'll make a statement to the country today.

It's understood he'll remain in post until the Conservative Party's elected his successor over the summer.

Appearing before MPs yesterday, Mr Johnson was adamant he wouldn't quit.

His resignation follows the release of a letter from his new chancellor - telling him to 'go now'.

Nadhim Zahawi told his boss the situation was 'not sustainable'.

That comes just hours after the PM’s aide James Duddridge says the newly appointed chancellor was "solidly behind" their boss.

Over 50 members of Mr Johnson's government had resigned within two days.

Croydon South MP Chris Philp was one of the last to resign, stepping down as minister for Tech and the Digital economy.

Wimbledon Tory MP Stephen Hammond also said that he had resubmitted his letter of no confidence.

The mass rebellion began on Tuesday, when Downing Street admitted the PM knew about allegations of inappropriate behaviour against Chris Pincher - before he promoted him to deputy chief whip.

A delegation of MPs then spoke to the PM about his position, which is believed to have included Spelthorne MP Kwasi Kwarteng.

Deputy PM and Esher MP Dominic Raab is believed to have stayed loyal to Mr Johnson until the end.

Sutton MP Paul Scully didn’t resign his post as small business minister, saying “I've tried to do the right thing for the country as calmly as possible during this chaotic time. Whilst pushing for change, government also has a responsibility to keep functioning with some continuity”

Speaking before it was understood Mr Johnson will resign, attorney general Suella Braverman said he should step down.

She says she will stand to replace him.

Liberal Democrat leader and Kingston MP Sir Ed Davey says “the stain on the Conservative Party can't be removed that easily.”

Sir Keir Starmer says “we need a proper change of government” and “We need a fresh start for Britain”

The value of the pound's responded to the news of Mr Johnson's imminent resignation.

It's trading around a quarter of a percent higher against both the dollar and euro

Last night he sacked Michael Gove for leading a delegation of ministers urging him to go.

Statement from Heathrow based British Airways

The Government recently decided to give the whole industry slot alleviation to minimise potential disruption this summer. While taking further action is not where we wanted to be, it's the right thing to do for our customers and our colleagues. This new flexibility means that we can further reduce our schedule and consolidate some of our quieter services so that we can protect as many of our holiday flights as possible.

While most of our flights are unaffected and the majority of customers will get away as planned, we don't underestimate the impact this will have and we're doing everything we can to get their travel plans back on track. We're in touch to apologise and offer rebooking options for new flights with us or another airline as soon as possible or issue a full refund.

Background guidance

We're now taking out a further around 10,300 flights until the end of October. All short-haul, long-haul unaffected in this round of cancellations.

This takes the total schedule intervention for the summer to 13%.

Boris Johnson's facing a day of tough questions about his leadership - after losing both his chancellor and health secretary

Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid resigned within minutes of each other yesterday.

It happened straight after Mr Johnson apologised publicly for promoting the MP Chris Pincher - even though he knew there'd been complaints about his behaviour.

Michelle Donelan has become education secretary.

This makes her the fifth to hold that post in six years.

Twickenham Lib Dem MP and their Education spokesperson Munira Wilson says it’s “depressing” that it’s seen as a “temporary staging post as ambitious ministers climb the greasy pole”.
