The Metropolitan Police Department has released an investigation into its “vocational standards and internal culture” after police officers were put in prison for life on charges of killing Sarah Ebarad.
Commissioner Cressida Dick said he would like to announce “a person of interest” who will lead the review of “examining training, leadership, processes, systems and standards of conduct and investigating cases where executives have disappointed the public.”
“This person works with me and challenges my senior team and our leadership on standards, corruption, sexual misconduct, and Met’s response when things go wrong,” she said. I am writing in the evening standard.
She argued that the report was “fully transparent” and “replied to me” while the recommendations for the change were published.
Dame Cressida also announced that it did not identify the area of interest, but an additional 650 police officers “focused on the city center and specific areas.”
It was after Wayne Kusens was sentenced to life imprisonment for the kidnapping, rape and murder of Sarah Evalard.
Couzens embarked on an 80-mile journey leading to rape and murder after accidentally arresting a 33-year-old marketing executive using Covid’s law, his police card, and handcuffs.
Ms. Evalard was strangled and killed by Kusen’s police belt.
But Dame Cressida said, “Met is far from perfect,” but its executives are “good people and doing their best.”
“They also feel angry, weakened and disappointed. These women and men are deeply caring, love their work and are very proud to serve you,” she said.
Talking to the broadcaster, the commissioner said she and her colleagues were “furious” and described the event as “absolutely scary.”
“We rely on the trust of the people and we are police with their consent. I know that the trust of the people is undermined,” she said. “People naturally have serious concerns about what they see. As a result, today we have an independent person coming to review the Metropolitan Museum of Art in terms of its standards, culture and methods. We announce that. How do we treat each other and the general public? “
It was after a group of women warned that they had lost confidence in the military after the horrifying details of Mr. Evalard’s murder were announced.
Labor Party member Harriet Harman, the mother of the House of Commons, former Secretary of State and Minister of Women, has asked Cressida Dame to resign.
Police guard dogs are investigating reports that Kusen was accused of public indecency as early as 2015, but no action has been taken.
When attending the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2018, senior officers admitted that a former police officer’s review was not “correctly” done.
Kusensu was once again openly associated with the obscene incident just days before Evalard’s murder.
Police are appealing to the general public and fellow police officers for information on other crimes that Kusen may have committed before Ms. Evalard was killed.
