Former Metropolitan Police Commissioner and member of the House of Lords, Bernard Hogan-Howe is visiting the Tees Valley to deliver what will be a fascinating and personal insight his time as the most senior police officer in the UK and the significant challenges he faced and the success he brought to the role.

Lord Hogan-Howe led the Metropolitan Police, an organisation with a workforce of nearly 50,000 people and a budget of £3.2billion, through £600million spending cuts, a national terrorist threat level set at ‘severe’, the London Olympics and multiple large-scale public political protests.

As Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and Chief Constable of Merseyside he delivered significant reductions in crime during his five year tenure.   When he took command of the Metropolitan Police, the capital city of 8.4million people was in a state of shock caused by the large-scale riots of 2011.

The event is being hosted by Clive Owen LLP in conjunction with Towergate BIB and BHP Law.
