Tor Garnett is a Detective Superintendent in the Met Police. She joined as a probationer in 2008 and has since worked across London in local policing and specialist crime roles, most recently as a Senior Investigating Officer in the Counter-Terrorism Command.

Tor is passionate about improving policing and the Met through collaboration and energetic leadership. In 2012 she founded the Commissioner’s 100 – a frontline do-tank which ran for 5 years which built a bottom up change movement within the Met that harnessed the experience, innovation and spirit of frontline officers.

It is about to welcome its fourth cohort of 300+ participants. Tor is currently leading the cross-sector anti-violence collaboration ‘Take 90’ to challenge violence norms in London.
