A review of armed policing

Yesterday the Home Secretary ordered a review into armed policing, seeking ways to support the officers that risk their lives to keep us safe. 

  • In the interest of public safety, our brave armed officers make split-second decisions under extraordinary pressures, and they must not fear ending up in the dock for carrying out their duties. 
  • That is why the Home Secretary has ordered a review into armed policing. The review will ensure these officers have the confidence to do their jobs whilst protecting us all. The Ministry of Defence have confirmed they will provide routine counterterrorism contingency support to the Metropolitan Police, should it be needed.
  • We will do everything in our power to support officers and the job they do in keeping communities safe.
