MET plans to deploy greatest number of officers in its history for Queen’s funeral

King Charles and Prince William stopped by the Metropolitan Police Command and Control Center in the midst of what British police say is their biggest operation ever: deploying the greatest number of officers in the MET’s history. It’s set to be bigger than the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics. Tasked with protecting 2000 guests at the state funeral on Monday, police are installing 24,000 barriers at key locations of the event.
