Mayor: Police and emergency services deserve a proper pay rise

12 September 2017

The Mayor has called for a pay rise for police and emergency services - and for the Government to properly fund London's police services, warning that the current funding levels risk further cuts to policing in London.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:

Our police and emergency services deserve a proper pay rise. The Government's offer to police is totally inadequate - it is below the level of inflation and they haven't agreed to fund it.

That means it will inevitably lead to cuts elsewhere in the police budget – which likely means fewer police officers on London's streets at a time when crime in London and elsewhere is rising.

It's time the Government properly funded London's police service and gave our brave officers the pay rise they deserve.
