Commissioner Rowley needs expert help to change the Met from top to bottom

As Mark Rowley was named as the Metropolitan Police's new Commissioner, Caroline Pidgeon said:

"I wish Mark Rowley well. London needs him to be a successful Commissioner, at a time when confidence in the Met is at a record low and it's just gone into special measures.

"There is no doubt that the scale of the challenge is immense, but the cultural and organisational failings in the Met cannot be solved by a change at the top alone.

"The Met's organisational failings and toxic culture require a top to bottom shake-up and the input of experts in organisational management, change and culture. The new commissioner needs to seek that expert help in order to turn the Met around."
