Non-confidential facts and advice to the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC)

1.    Introduction and background

1.1.    The current PSA extension with Heathrow Airport Limited is due to expire on the 31 March 2018. This paper requests approval to extend this PSA by a further 12 months.  A PSA is a statutory requirement in the case where it has been agreed that some security measures in the Airport Security Plan will be carried out by a local police force.

2.    Issues for consideration

2.1.    The current PSA was reviewed by TLT Solicitors on behalf of Directorate of Legal Services. The vast majority of the terms and conditions remain unchanged.

3.    Financial Comments

3.1    The cost of the PSA will be met by Heathrow Airport Limited.

3.2    Further details are contained in the Part 2.

5.    Equality Comments

5.1.    There are no direct equality or diversity implications arising from this report
