‘Appalling tide’ must be turned<br />

THE Mayor of London launched a scathing<br />

attack on government ministers as fingers<br />

were pointed in the wake of the Bank Holiday<br />

weekend shootings.<br />

Sadiq Kahn accused Theresa May’s cabinet of<br />

failing to protect the public, citing budget cuts<br />

to the Metropolitan Police as a defining factor<br />

in the rising levels of gun and knife-associated<br />

violence in the Capital.<br />

“Overstretched and under-resourced” is<br />

how Mr Khan described the force as he urged<br />

under-resourced: Met Police’s Cressida Dick<br />

government to review its policy and ensure Met<br />

commissioner Cressida Dick is fully equipped<br />

to ensure safety.<br />

“Keeping Londoners safe is my top priority<br />

– I remain in constant contact with the<br />

Metropolitan Police and am reassured that they<br />

are doing everything they can to bring those<br />

responsible to justice and to keep us all safe.<br />

“However, the police service in London, like<br />

the rest of the country, is overstretched and<br />

under-resourced.<br />

“Violent crime has been rising across the<br />

country since 2014 and the government is<br />

failing in their basic duty to keep people<br />

safe – imposing cuts of £1billion on the Met<br />

Police which risk sending police numbers to<br />

historically low levels.”<br />

Killings<br />

Mr Khan said his “heart goes out” to the<br />

victims of the chilling weekend chaos, and<br />

vowed to “work ceaselessly” to rid London of<br />

the “appalling tide of violent killings”.<br />

“The Home Office’s own evidence shows you<br />

cannot keep cutting without consequences,<br />

and violent crime devastates communities and<br />

ruins lives,” he added.<br />

“As Mayor I’m doing all I can to compensate<br />

for the failure of ministers.”<br />

<strong>City</strong> Hall is pledging a further £110million to<br />

the Met in a bid to boost the number of officers<br />

out on the streets, while a £45m cash pot has<br />

been made available to finance programmes<br />

tackling the causes of violent crime, as well as<br />

projects designed to steer people away from<br />

Capital<br />

Innovation in<br />

our policing<br />

needed now<br />

more than ever<br />

WELCOME to the first edition of a new regular<br />

column from the <strong>City</strong> of London Police,<br />

bringing updates and insight into the latest<br />

policing news from the dedicated force for the<br />

Square Mile.<br />

You may be aware that <strong>City</strong> of London Police<br />

is the national lead force for fraud, home to<br />

Action Fraud, and responsible for investigating<br />

some of the country’s most complex cases.<br />

We also play a key role in warning businesses<br />

about how to protect themselves from cyber<br />

attacks.<br />

But we are also a busy London police force<br />

and what the past 12 months has shown is that<br />

we work seamlessly with the Metropolitan<br />

Police and British Transport Police to protect<br />

the Capital – not only in relation to terrorism,<br />

but also for other crime types.<br />

Admirably<br />

For example, we work with the Met on an<br />

operation to tackle moped-enabled crime and<br />

associated phone snatches, as well as violent and<br />

gang-related knife crime across London.<br />

Everyone within the <strong>City</strong> of London<br />

Police continues to respond admirably to the<br />

challenges ahead, ensuring we continue to<br />

deliver an excellent policing service for everyone<br />

in the <strong>City</strong>.<br />

Last week we launched Cyber Griffin, an<br />

exciting new threat-briefing service helping<br />

<strong>City</strong> businesses become more secure against<br />

cyber crime.<br />

As cyber crime increases and more online<br />

culture of violence: four<br />

gun-related incidents<br />

were reported on a<br />

chilling weekend<br />

antisocial and damaging behaviour. “I refuse<br />

to accept that nothing can be done to stem the<br />

appalling tide of violent killings we are seeing<br />

on our streets and, together with the police,<br />

community groups, victims and their families<br />

and Londoners, will continue to work ceaselessly<br />

to tackle violent crime, ” said Mr Khan.<br />


Commissioner Ian Dyson<br />

QPM of the <strong>City</strong> of London<br />

Police introduces the first<br />

in a series of regular guest<br />

columns from the men<br />

and women behind the<br />

Square Mile’s force<br />

attacks are launched on UK businesses than ever<br />

before, our cyber crime unit felt a communitybased<br />

approach to tackling the problem was<br />

needed.<br />

The initiative is targeted at businesses within<br />

the <strong>City</strong>, from those with very little knowledge<br />

of cyber-enabled crime threats, all the way up<br />

to individuals who hold IT security and risk<br />

roles.<br />

As criminals working in the cyberspace<br />

become more sophisticated, it’s important we<br />

all have at least basic skills to combat those that<br />

seek to do us harm.<br />

Fascinating<br />

Here at the <strong>City</strong> of London Police, we have<br />

a history of trying new things – we were the<br />

first force to introduce automatic number<br />

plate recognition in the UK in the 1990s, and<br />

innovative police tactic Project Servator was<br />

first tested in the Square Mile.<br />

In that spirit, we’ve now launched a podcast,<br />

Off the Cuff – a series of radio-style interviews<br />

with <strong>City</strong> officers to shed some light on what<br />

goes on behind the scenes at a busy, modern<br />

police force.<br />

Our latest episode features an in-depth<br />

interview with myself, discussing what it<br />

means to me to be police commissioner for a<br />

place as unique and fascinating as the <strong>City</strong> of<br />

London.<br />

more about Cyber Griffin, Off the Cuff, and the<br />

<strong>City</strong> of London Police.

HOW TO START EXERCISING MORE... AND STICK WITH IT that the weather is warming up, and swimming is<br />

a great low-impact workout that won’t put stress<br />

on your bones, joints and muscles – perfect for<br />

walking the plank: a top<br />

those who are just starting out or recovering<br />

way to tone up that can be<br />

completed anywhere<br />

from an injury.<br />

Get a move on<br />

SUMMER is just around the corner, and<br />

it’s never too late to start thinking about an<br />

exercise plan to help shed the excesses of a long<br />

cold winter, improve your fitness levels, and<br />

get yourself looking and feeling great for the<br />

warmer weather.<br />

Everybody knows that a little exercise can<br />

help you feel lighter on the scales, but an<br />

equally important benefit is the extra endorphins<br />

your body produces every time you break a sweat.<br />

Endorphins are your body’s response to pain or<br />

extreme exertion. These chemicals act as natural<br />

painkillers, and can have dramatic effect on<br />

your mood, sleep patterns and stress levels. The<br />

NHS recommends adults aged between<br />

19 and 64 should be doing two types of<br />

physical activity – aerobic and musclestrengthening.<br />

The weekly guidelines<br />

suggest:<br />

•150 minutes of moderate aerobic<br />

activity like brisk walking or cycling<br />

(that’s 30 mins x 5 days per week); or<br />

•75 minutes of vigorous aerobic<br />

activity such as running; plus<br />

•Two strength sessions<br />

working all major muscle<br />

groups – legs, hips, chest,<br />

shoulders, arms, back, abs.<br />

It’s a big commitment and the one thing we’re<br />

never short on is excuses. Too busy, too tired,<br />

too unmotivated. Maybe you don’t have a gym<br />

membership: it’s too expensive or inconvenient.<br />

Perhaps you do have a membership but you find<br />

it too intimidating to set foot in the door.<br />

But for every excuse for skipping your workout,<br />

there is about 10 more reasons you should stick<br />

with it. Here are my tips on how to make it part of<br />

your everyday routine and achieving a healthier,<br />

fitter you.<br />

Excuse: “I don’t have time to exercise”<br />

Get yourself a good pair of trainers and hit the<br />

pavement. Get off the bus several stops early and<br />

get a brisk walk in before and after work. Climb<br />

the stairs instead of the escalators on the Tube<br />

and hoof it up to the office rather than relying on<br />

the lift.<br />

Hire a Boris Bike and use the <strong>City</strong>’s dedicated<br />

network of cycle pathways to travel between<br />

meetings. It’s five minutes here and there but<br />

it will add up to your 30 minutes of moderate<br />

exercise before you know it.<br />

Excuse: “I don’t like gyms”<br />

A gym isn’t the only place to work up a sweat,<br />

particularly now that the sun is (intermittently)<br />

shining.<br />

Local councils have been trying to tackle<br />

our couch potato lifestyle by installing<br />

outdoor gyms in parks across London.<br />

The equipment has been designed<br />

to provide low-impact training in an<br />

intuitive, easy way with various machines<br />

to target the lower body, upper body and<br />

core, as well as cardio and weight-based<br />

strength exercises.<br />

They’re also completely free to<br />

use. If your park doesn’t have an<br />

outdoor gym, a bench is perfect for<br />

bodyweight exercises like push-ups,<br />

tricep dips and step-ups. Your local<br />

Excuse: “I can’t get motivated”<br />

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to finding<br />

the motivation to make exercise part of your<br />

daily routine.<br />

Some people swear by a morning workout so<br />

they don’t spend the day talking themselves out of<br />

it, others say they prefer exercise in the afternoon<br />

or evening to shake off the stresses of the day.<br />

As we humans are creatures of habit, it does<br />

help if you can schedule your exercise for roughly<br />

the same time each day to make it part of your<br />

routine. It’s no secret that exercise goes hand in<br />

hand with a balanced diet, so keep your food<br />

choices in mind when starting any new fitness<br />

plan.<br />

Processed foods that are high in sugar and<br />

saturated fats make us feel sluggish so avoid them<br />

where possible and stick to light, high-protein<br />

meals like fish or chicken and salad to keep your<br />

energy levels up throughout the day. Make sure<br />

you’re drinking enough water to replenish any<br />

hydration lost through the extra activity.<br />

Start by setting yourself goals that are<br />

measurable and achievable. It’s all very well to<br />

say that you want to ‘get fit’ or ‘lose weight’, but<br />

targets are more effective if they are specific.<br />

Sign up for a five-kilometre fun run or set a<br />

target of completing three workouts per week;<br />

you will find it a lot easier to get out of bed that<br />

hour early each morning if you have something<br />

to work towards.<br />

As you start hitting those targets and gaining<br />

confidence, exercise will become something to<br />

look forward to, rather than a chore.<br />
