Met Police Commissioner Speaks To Heart

The Metropolitan Police Commissioner insists the force will continue to invest in frontline policing despite needing to make 500 million pounds of cuts in the next three years.

Bernard Hogan Howe has told London's Heart that he will know by Christmas how many officers will have to go as part of police cuts.

But he plans to have fewer back office jobs and more constables. 

He says the cuts will make the force "lean and mean".

Mr Hogan Howe has spoken to us in an interview to mark his first year in office.
