After the MPA's meeting yesterday the Met Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, has come out apologising saying that someone used the "wrong language" in a TV interview about the apparent change in tactics increasing armed patrols on problem estates. The doubling of armed patrols is in fact a "small authorised extension" to routine policing in response to a recent rise in gun crime and "no change to our style". In any language, we don't really see the difference. Remember, you can have your say on the Met's policing priorities in consultation until 30th November.
