The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) serves a population of over 7.5 million living in an area of 1,579 sq kms. The population is expected to rise to 8.1 million by 2016. Policing in London is a 24 hour seven days a week operation delivered by over 50,000 people.

Buildings play a vital role in supporting the delivery of effective and efficient policing for communities across the capital. The estate currently comprises just under 1,000,000 sqm and in the order of 900 properties. The MPS are committed to providing Londoners with a customer focused, effective, value for money service that is constantly responsive to the needs of the communities we serve.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – the MPS have a strong commitment to the principles of social, economic and environmental sustainability. In our long-term profiling of the estate we are taking into account:

  • energy costs of our buildings
  • our responsibilities towards Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)
  • environmental target set back central Government as well as the GLA.

The MPS faces many challenges over the new few years responding to a growing and diverse population, collaborating with new partners and working within increasingly difficult financial constraints. These challenges will impact on the whole service including how we procure our new buildings and use our existing facilities.
