Governing Board


Lord John Stevens QPM

A past Commissioner of Police for London, Lord Stevens is universally known for his support of police and the work they do. Since his retirement from the Police Service he has been appointed to lead on a number of high profile investigations and enquiries, not least of which was the investigation into the untimely death of Diana, Princess of Wales. A committed supporter of our work, we are indeed fortunate in having him as a Patron.

Martin Hewitt QPM – Assistant Commissioner – Metropolitan Police

In May 2014, Martin was promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner. His primary area of responsibility is for professional standards, anti-corruption, and records management, and he will be the Management Board lead for preparing the organisation for a forthcoming public enquiry into aspects of undercover policing. He was awarded the Queens Police Medal in the 2014 Queens Birthday Honours. Martin joined the ‘Clubs’ in 2012.
