According to a thread on another forum they are not police helicopters, but are newsgathering.

They were flying over Dulwich sports ground area as well, one of them seemed larger than the normal police or HEMS.

From my viewpoint they were both news gathering helicopters, the police one is blue with a yellow top and it has a twin tail fin. Also the police use a Eurocopter EC145 and these certainly didn't look like one of those.

Yes, it was hovering over the block containing the new Penge Library when I went past - very low. Then moved over to the south side of Croydon Road, i.e. the Sainsbury's block, and eventually moved off. *Very* big lights on the bottom noticeable.
