Met forges closer links with city force

Met forges closer links with city force

Keith Luck will continue to work closely with the Met’s close rivals, the City of London Police, in an effort to streamline resources and cut costs

Keith Luck, director of resources at the Metropolitan Police, has vowed to
continue working towards merging financing functions with the City of London
Police, despite the recent failure of a plan to consolidate police forces in the
UK.

Luck, also a CIMA council member, told Accountancy Age that he will
continue to work closely with the Met’s close rivals, the City of London Police,
in an effort to streamline resources and cut costs.

‘There are a number of areas where we can integrate back office functions,
such as finance and procurement,’ said Luck.

He ruled out a complete merger with the Met’s square-mile neighbours though,
as it would require onerous legislative changes. ‘It is not something we are
looking at,’ he said.
