With about 1,200 employees (including about 900 police officers) and only three police stations, on Snow Hill, Wood Street, and Bishopsgate, the City of London Police is the smallest Home Office (territorial) police force in the United Kingdom both in terms of geographic area (one square mile) and numbers of police officers.

The force area has a resident population of 8,043 with 4,421 households. However, these numbers are increased by the daily influx of approximately 350,000 commuters working in the City. In addition, about 300,000 cars a day pass through the square mile, as well as a large number of tourists.


Force headquarters is at Wood Street Police Station with the force being divided into two territorial divisions for operational policing. The two divisions are Snow Hill and Bishopsgate with one police station for each. Around half the force staff work from these two police stations, providing services such as uniformed patrol and criminal investigation. Since it polices one of the world's financial hubs, the force has a very well regarded Economic Crime Department, commonly referred to as the Fraud Squad, which deals with fraud and other financial crime.


The force in its present form dates from 1839, when the Corporation of London agreed to reform its police force along modern lines in order for it to not be amalgamated with the new Metropolitan Police. It is a direct successor to the Watch of the 13th century. 1839 was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ... Arms of the City of London as shown on Blackfriars station. ...
