First female Assistant Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police

I have spent most of today sitting on an Appointments Panel at the Metropolitan Police Authority.  The Panel was convened to appoint a new Assistant Commissioner – the equivalent of a Chief Constable outside London.  There were an strong group of candidates and I am delighted that the outcome has been that Cressida Dick has been appointed as Assistant Commissioner (Specialist Crime).  

She will be the first female Assistant Commissioner in the 180-year history of the Metropolitan Police.

  1. I wonder if the “newspapers” will blow this up?

    Ms Dick remains a hate figure for all those who hate HMG because of her role in the shooting of De Menezes.
