Our people


Members lead the work of the Authority, primarily through the committee structure.

The MPA has 23 members, 12 from the London Assembly and 11 independent members, one appointed directly by the Home Secretary and the others through an open recruitment campaign. They are appointed for four years.

Each member is linked with at least one borough. This means wherever you live a member is taking a keen interest in policing issues in your area.


The MPA secretariat, led by the senior management team, supports the work of the committees and members. The MPA secretariat also engages with communities, stakeholders and partners across the capital.
