Casey Report: must be catalyst for police reform
We have welcomed the report into our culture and standards and called for it to be a catalyst for police reform.
The report follows an extensive review by Baroness Casey of Blackstock.
Its findings will be taken forward to inform and shape an ambitious plan to reform and rebuild trust while delivering for Londoners.
The review was commissioned in October 2021 following the murder of Sarah Everard by a serving officer.
Baroness Casey was asked to examine the standards of behaviour and internal culture of the Met and to make recommendations on the actions required.
Her final report, published on Tuesday, 21 March explores a wide range of issues including the Met’s organisation, its support for officers and staff, discrimination, standards, its approach to protecting women and children and its wider operational effectiveness.
The Met’s Turnaround Plan was intentionally published in draft form in January.
It marked the start of a conversation and a programme of meaningful engagement with communities and partners with a revised and final version to be published in late Spring.
Baroness Casey’s report will play a crucial role in shaping those ongoing conversations and will ensure the final plan meets the scope and scale of the challenge we are confronted with.
