  1. Government urged to 'keep its promise' as officer faces threat of dismissal over method used to stop moped-enabled crime. Tactical contact: End of the road for the moped-enabled crime (stock image) Date - 8th May 2019 By - Nick Hudson - Police Oracle 10 Comments Rank and file have reacted with dismay at an officer being “fed to the wolves” as he faces dismissal for tactics authorised by police chiefs and backed by politicians and the public to stop moped-enabled crime. The Police Federation has called on the government to “keep its promise” as PC Edwin Sutton waits to learn his fate this afternoon when a disciplinary panel decides whether he breached professional standards by using a “dangerous” method to stop a teenager escaping after a suspected handbag theft. The Met Police officer is accused of driving his vehicle into the path of a moped being ridden by a 17-year-old in Erith, south-east London, on May 21, 2017. The collision left the teenager, who was not wearing a helmet, with head injuries and a broken foot. He was discharged from hospital a few days later and later pleaded guilty to several criminal offences. An Independent Office for Police Conduct investigation concluded that the officer should not face criminal charges but recommended gross misconduct proceedings. Police began using the technique of knocking suspects off their mopeds, known as “tactical contact”, in late 2017 to help tackle an epidemic of moped crime in London, where suspects sped off after staging snatch robberies. The Met says “hard stops” have been instrumental in reducing moped-enabled crime in London by more than 50 per cent in a year. PC Sutton’s hearing at the Empress State Building in south west London comes just days after Home Secretary Sajid Javid announced plans to change the law to give police greater protection and figures which showed the tactics had slashed moped crime. But Met Police Federation chairman Ken Marsh blasted: “What message does this case send? We believe this officer acted within guidelines, but is being fed to the wolves. “It is not right.” Federation lead on driver training and pursuits Tim Rogers said the government needed to keep its promise to protect police drivers when they were tackling criminals. Mr Rogers said: “The government is happy to take credit for robust tactics used by officers in London to tackle moped crime. “They agree the law has to change to legitimise the tactics. But they have failed to find the parliamentary time in order to make the change. An IOPC statement said: “Last August we welcomed government proposals for changes to the law, guidance and practice surrounding police pursuits. “We will investigate deaths or serious injuries following police contact and do so based on whether the officers followed their own force guidance, and policies and current legislation as determined by parliament. “Police officers are entitled to use force that is reasonable and proportionate to the circumstances.” View On Police Oracle Previous discussion https://police.community/topic/189850-met-police-scooter-crash-video-released-as-iopc-investigates/#comments
