A portrait of the first female Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, has been unveiled to mark the centenary of women in the force.
The Commissioner paid for the painting from her own salary, and the 20 hours of sittings at the artist's studio took place outside of office hours. It will hang at the Met's Hendon Training Centre, the only painting of a woman alongside images of 26 male predecessors.
Unusually it has been unveiled while the Commissioner is still in post.
The new painting, by artist Frances Bell, will hang alongside portraits which include Robert Peel and Sir Cecil Frederick Nevil Macready. Sir Frederick officially announced in November 1918 that the Met would have female police officers for the first time.
