City of London Police

Policing the Square Mile brings with it particular challenges, quite unlike any other policing area within the UK. The City of London is the world’s leading international financial and business centre.

In addition to the hustle and bustle of a vibrant 24/7 business community, each night around 10,000 residents call the City their home, whilst every day over 300,000 people (from an estimated 189 different cultures and nationalities) come to work in the City from Greater London and the south east of England. Over 4 million people visit the City annually.

City of London Police are committed to fighting crime at all levels. It is often the case that residents’ and workers’ priorities will be different from those that impact on large corporations and those concerns are given appropriate regard.

If you been a victim of crime or witness to an incident in the City of London Square Mile, there are a number of different ways you can report the crime. You can always call 999 in an emergency or 101 for non-emergencies. If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired you can use the textphone number 1800 101 to report your non-emergency crime. Alternatively you can report online.
