This is to inform you that the MPS are unable to proceed with your request
as we require further information from you.  

'When a local police force is required to police an Event and that
policing effort draws officers widely from the Metropolitan Police area':

1. Generally speaking - in relation to remuneration - what is the
arrangement please between the local police service and the Metropolitan
Police?

Please can you clarify what you mean by "local police force"?   Do you
just mean the MPS?
And also, what do you mean by local police service and the Met Police? -
The MPS is the local police.

It would also assist us if you could provide some examples please.

After receiving your reply, your request will then be considered and you
will receive a response within the statutory timescale of 20 working days.

However, if the requested additional information has not been received by
12 October 2018 I will assume you no longer wish to proceed with this

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

Borough-level
-------------------

By local police force, I mean London *Borough* police.

I would imagine that requests to police large scheduled outdoor entertainment events would come from either, one of the 19 London Boroughs or from that Borough's police force.

I understand that, due to the size of such events, the Borough (or Borough-level Police) affected, request a little extra help from police all over London, in order that the Borough (or local) police are not significantly depleted.

I'm not aware there's any other level of organisation of police force between the MPS and Police Officers.

Yours faithfully,

Clive Carter

Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)
