LONDON - The British government named Bernard Hogan-Howe as the new commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police on Monday, giving him the job a year before the capital hosts the Olympic Games and a month after the worst riots in the city in years.

The 53-year-old, who has a tough, no-nonsense reputation, replaces Paul Stephenson who resigned in July over the phone-hacking scandal that has embroiled the British newspaper arm of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire.

Hogan-Howe, who is now effectively Britain's most senior police officer as head of the country's largest force, had been installed as the acting deputy commissioner following Stephenson's resignation.

"It is my intention to build on public trust and lead a service that criminals will fear and staff will be proud to work for," he told reporters.
