share close

Baroness Louise Casey of Blackstock will lead an independent review into the Metropolitan Police’s culture and standards in the wake of Sarah Everard’s murder, the force has announced.

The review will look into the current leadership of the force and its recruitment, vetting and training of officers.

Met Commissioner, Dame Cressida Dick, said: “The appointment of Baroness Casey to lead the independent review in to our culture and standards is an important step in our journey to rebuild public trust.

“Louise is extremely experienced and highly respected and I know will ask the difficult questions needed for this thorough review. This will build a stronger Met, ensure lasting improvement our service to London and public confidence in us.”

An urgent examination is already under way into all current investigations of sexual and domestic abuse allegations against Met Police officers and staff.

Ms Everard, 33, was raped and killed by Wayne Couzens, a then-serving policeman who abducted her as she walked home in south London on 3 March.

The review is expected to take about six months.

More on Sarah Everard

Baroness Casey said: “Trust is given to the police by our, the public’s, consent. So any acts that undermine that trust must be examined and fundamentally changed.

“This will no doubt be a difficult task but we owe it to the victims and families this has affected and the countless decent police officers this has brought into disrepute.”
