Police chiefs thank Sir Bernard for his contribution to policing

29 Sep 2016

Following the announcement of Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe's retirement, NPCC Chair Sara Thornton, on behalf of all chief officers, offers thanks for his contribution to policing in London and nationally

National Police Chiefs' Council Chair Sara Thornton said:

"Sir Bernard has led the Metropolitan Police through a period with challenges from terrorism, changing crime and reduced budgets with integrity, determination and a focus on protecting all Londoners. On behalf of all chief officers, I want to thank Bernard for his contribution to policing. We look forward to continuing to work with him in the coming month and wish him the very best for his retirement from policing."
