Page 2 of 56 
My thanks are due to many people who have helped me during this Inquiry.The Commissioner, the Management Board, the senior management team of the MPSand the critical readers have been assiduous in providing me with information anddiscussion. Many police officers and staff across the MPS have contributed throughmeetings and by responding to my request for information through the MPS intranet.Journalists, politicians and others, some from organisations with responsibilitiestowards policing, have helped shape my thinking. These are listed at Appendix Cunless they asked me not to publish their name. In particular, my thanks to the staffteam who have supported the work with diligence, ideas and unfailing good humour.Elizabeth FilkinJanuary 2012
