This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not responsible for.

The Mayor of London is responsible for the Metropolitan Police.

You can find out how to petition the Greater London Assembly, which looks at the work of the Mayor, here:

You could start a new petition calling on the UK Government to provide more funding to the Metropolitan Police if that is something you would like to see happen.
