He said: “I have enjoyed my time tremendously with the Met Police over the past thirty years. Policing has provided me with some fantastic opportunities and I’ve worked alongside some great people. It’s a career that I would recommend to everyone.

“I’m pleased to say that the Met Police has changed enormously since I first joined. There is still a long way to go and I passionately believe that in order to best serve London that we need to be truly representative of the diverse communities within our capital.

“I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the police officers and staff of the MPS who work so hard to protect our communities and keep London safe. Their daily bravery and selfless dedication to duty is an inspiration to us all. I would like to give special thanks to the men and women of Harrow Borough where I have been privileged to be Borough Commander for the past three and a half years of my police career.

“I know that I will leaving the Borough in the very capable command of Acting Detective Chief Superintendent Neil Wilson who will be in overall command of Harrow until Chief Superintendent Simon Owens take up his post as the newly-appointed Borough Commander of Harrow.”
