Born in Sheffield, brought up by his unmarried mother and attending the local comprehensive school, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe joined the South Yorkshire Police in 1979 as a police constable. At the age of 28yrs he received a police scholarship to study law at Merton College, Oxford. In September 2011, shortly after the riots in London that spread to other UK cities, he was selected by the Home Secretary, Theresa May, and Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to be Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, holding this position until February 2017.  He has very recently been appointed a life peer and will sit in the House of Lords. All are welcome to attend (including family members in College for the Formal Hall) - places first-come, first-served. 
The talk will be followed by a drinks reception in the Ruth Deech Building.
