Who is Cressida Dick's partner Helen?

CRESSIDA Dick is the first openly gay commissioner of the Metropolitan Police.

She has been in a relationship with Helen for a number of years.

Who is Cressida Dick's partner Helen?

Helen keeps herself very much out of the limelight and it appears very little has been written about her.

They have been together about eight years.

Cressida Dick started her career with the Met Police on the beat in Soho, London, in the 1980s.

She became the Met Commissioner in 2017.

What is Helen's role with the Metropolitan Police?

Helen is a serving Met officer.

It’s thought she is serving as a response team inspector at a police station in a busy south London borough.

Dick has come under intense pressure to quit her role over the policing of the Sarah Everard vigil in Clapham Common.

Police were photographed dragging women away and kneeling on one protester’s back after they tried to disperse crowds.

The Met Police said four people were arrested for public order and coronavirus regulation breaches.

She has strongly resisted the calls.

Dick said: “What happened to Sarah appals me. As you know, I’m the first woman commissioner of the Met, perhaps it appalls me, in a way, even more because of that.

“What has happened makes me more determined, not less, to lead my organisation.”

What has Cressida Dick said about her partner?

Dick has dismissed interest in her sexuality in the past.

She told BBC’s Desert Island Discs in February 2019: “Sometimes people say to me that they think it’s important, but to be honest, for me, I think it’s one of the least interesting things about me.”

She added: “I happen to love Helen – she’s my partner. On we go.”
