The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is the organisation through which the Mayor of London exercises his role as the Police and Crime Commissioner for London and is led by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime. MOPAC undertakes a broad range of statutory duties and works closely with the Mayor of London, Deputy Mayor and Metropolitan Police Service to deliver the priorities that will create safer London communities.


This is an exciting time to join MOPAC to continue to drive the delivery of the Mayor’s Police and Crime Plan for London. We are a dedicated, professional, highly skilled workforce and are committed to equality and diversity.


We are looking to appoint to two Research and Analysis Officer positions within the Evidence & Insight team – one on a permanent and another on a fixed term basis.

It would be a significant advantage to have experience of data recording systems and performance management systems in complex organisations.  Furthermore, in-depth knowledge of policing, crime and levers available to drive improvement in a policing and wider public service context, as well as qualitative and quantitative research data, would also be advantageous.
