Sir John Stevens

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) advised journalists that the Prime Minister had paid tribute to the work of the Met Police Commissioner, Sir John Stevens, who had announced his retirement today. The Prime Minister said, “Sir John has brought outstanding leadership during one of the most challenging periods in modern policing. His contribution to fighting crime on London’s streets, dealing with the terror threat and modernising the police force has been immense. He has brought energy, vision and dedication to making our capital city a safer place to live and visit. I have particularly valued his integrity and straight talking approach. He will be deeply missed and I wish him every success for the future”. Asked why Sir John was retiring, the PMOS said that the reason was for Sir John himself to announce.
