Mr Bratton, who has been praised for his clampdown on violent crime in New York and Los Angeles, urged the London mayor to “be careful” about the way in which he approaches the issue of violent crime in the capital.

The US supercop, who also served as Police Commissioner of Boston and Los Angeles Chief of Police, warned that Mr Khan must not “make the same mistake we made in America”.

He told LBC: “We got too tough and too many innocents got caught up in the process. Police lost a lot of ground and a lot of respect.

“I would counsel the Mayor of London, be careful on this idea of getting the cops to be tougher. You have to balance it.

“The toughness is going to be exerted largely on your minority communities where the bulk of this crime is occurring.

“You already have pretty bad relationships there. You have to be precise.

“Who in that community is committing the crime and focus on them, not do the broad brush policing we did here in the United States where hundreds of thousands of young men of colour were being stopped routinely, often without any cause and the tension it created far outweighed the effectiveness of that get tough approach.”

The London Mayor, who was elected to office in May 2016, has been blamed for not taking enough action to curb increases in crime.
