Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe joined Southwark Police officers and deputy mayor of London Joanne McCartney AM for a walkabout in Borough Market last week as part of the #walkthemet initiative.
The commissioner and the deputy mayor were greeted by Borough Market chairman Donald Hyslop and managing director Darren Henaghan.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: "At Christmas, officers continue to work around the clock and protect London whilst people are enjoying their festivities, so we hope this helps highlight the challenges our officers face and their year-round dedication."
The #WalktheMet initiative saw councillors, MPs and London Assembly members across the capital go on patrol with their local police to learn about the issues facing front-line officers.
