Dame Cressida Dick on policing London through a pandemic

In London, the Metropolitan Police (the Met) are the force responsible for the incredibly complex task of keeping Londoners safe. At the helm of the Met is Dame Cressida Dick, the first woman to ever hold that position.


Cressida speaks with Julia about her career path to the Met, and what it's been like to manage the police force in London through the pandemic.


They also discuss murder of Sarah Everard and the policing of the vigil that followed, and how Cressida felt when she first found out the accused murderer was a serving Met police officer.
