I am pleased to announce Her Majesty the Queen’s appointment of Timothy Godwin OBE, QPM as the next Deputy Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis.

I made my recommendation to Her Majesty following an open competition for the selection of a new Deputy Commissioner and having regard to the recommendations made to me by the Metropolitan police authority and representations from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis.

I am confident that Timothy Godwin will be an excellent Deputy Commissioner and will help the Commissioner to lead the Metropolitan police service in delivering for the public both in London and nationally.
