  1. Lloyd's joins paid-leave scheme as Met looks at turning back the clock to 2012 recruiting levels. Strength in numbers: Launch of the Employer Supported Policing scheme at New Scotland Yard Date - 24th April 2019 By - Nick Hudson - Police Oracle 8 Comments The Met is looking to nearly triple the number of special constables and turn back the clock – to help plug gaps in the fight against violent crime. It aims at increasing the numbers from 1,900 to 5,000 as it expands its Employer Supported Policing Scheme where companies contribute by giving their staff paid leave to become specials. One of the country’s oldest employers – Lloyds insurers – has signed up by offering paid leave of up to 30 days in the first year, on top of holidays, so staff can join the Met as specials. The number of specials has been decimated since 2012, the year of the London Olympics, when the Met had 5,000 and there were 19,000 nationally. There are now around 12,000 across England and Wales. Frontline policing Commander Dave Musker, who welcomed the “positive commitment and contribution” of Lloyd’s to grant its staff special paid leave specifically to volunteer up to 10 days a year and with extra support for initial training, said: “The Employer Supported Policing Scheme is a powerful partnership between, businesses and the Met. “It benefits employers, their staff and the police service by releasing special constables to volunteer in the communities they serve. “This is something which directly contributes to making London safer and provides businesses with a unique opportunity to play their part.” Currently, 17 companies have committed to the Met scheme and as a result, 153 people have joined the Met as specials through the scheme. As of February this year, the London force has 1,883 special constables in varying ranks and roles. Of these, 499 are women and 1,158 are men. Lloyd’s CEO John Neal said: “Lloyd’s is committed to supporting our employees with the work they do in the community. “We are therefore delighted to partner with the Met for this scheme. It offers Lloyd’s employees the opportunity to gain new and valuable skills used both in the workplace and everyday life – such as resilience, leadership and managing difficult situations – and, at the same time, play a part in keeping London’s streets safe.” Over the past three months, specials have contributed more than 93,000 policing hours – two-thirds as operational duties – and contributed an average of 22 hours a month. Officers work across the dozen basic command units and support specialist commands such as the roads and transport policing command and parliamentary and diplomatic protection. View On Police Oracle
