Cressida Dick Career, What is her profession?

Dick joined the Metropolitan Police as a constable in 1983, working a beat in London’s West End. She was a high-ranking officer in the Thames Valley Police from 1995 to 2000. She worked in the force’s diversity directorate, anti-gang and anti-gun crime operations, and counterterrorism operations as a senior officer.

Cressida was appointed the assistant commissioner in June 2009, making her the first woman to occupy this position substantively. During a vacancy in the position in late 2011 and early 2012, she served as acting deputy commissioner. She was in charge of the Met’s security preparations for the 2012 London Olympics security operations.

Dick left the Met in 2015 to take a job at the Foreign Office but was called back in 2017 when the Home Office chose her to succeed Bernard Hogan-Howe as MPS Commissioner, making her the first woman to hold the position.

Dick’s career has been marked by a number of crises and controversies, as well as a number of comebacks.

She oversaw the operation that resulted in the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes in 2005. The MPS was blamed for lapses in a subsequent inquiry, although Dick was exonerated of personal culpability in a 2007 trial. She has presided over a service that has been impacted by reductions in police funds and staffing levels during her tenure as commissioner.

As of 10 February 2022, Dick will leave the post after losing the confidence of Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London. Dick will continue her responsibilities for a short period of time to ensure a smooth transition.
