  1. A number of police officers have been injured after responding to reports that men were "acting suspiciously" in Finsbury Park. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/finsbury-park-incident-police-street-fight-a4435466.html
  2. BBC News Four days old, but I thought interesting that it made national news and papers, just a few days after police services being criticised for actions related to the virus and has drawn lots of questions about why gathering large numbers of people in the same place, against GOV instructions, was permitted. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-52328143 Image captionPolice were caught on camera appearing to not be adhering to the social distancing rules London's mayor has expressed concern after videos appeared to show police failing to observe social distancing rules. Met officers were filmed taking part in the 'Clap for Carers' on a crowded Westminster Bridge on Thursday. "While many people adhered to social distancing guidance, it appears that some did not," the Met said. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was "not unreasonable" for the public to query how this could happen. The Met added: "We regularly remind our officers of the importance of social distancing, where practical." However, a video posted by Damir Rafi appeared to show many police and members of the public ignoring the regulations. Image Copyright @d_rafi1@D_RAFI1 Report Mr Khan told LBC Radio: "I am equally concerned that the social distancing rules don't seem to have been observed. "I suspect, and I have no confirmation, that the Met and London Ambulance Service will be asking these kind of questions in relation to this. "The police have a difficult job to make sure the rules are observed and I think they will both be asking questions," Mr Khan added. Met commissioner, Dame Cressida Dick, who was filmed clapping on Westminster Bridge, can clearly be seen observing the two metre distancing guidelines, but officers at another part of the bridge were not. Image Copyright @metpoliceuk@METPOLICEUK Downing Street has now intervened after comments appeared on social media criticising the police for not observing distancing rules. "We would ask that everyone takes responsibility and adheres to social distancing rules so that we can safely show our appreciation for those who are working so hard to fight coronavirus," said the Prime Minister's official spokesman. Former Met and Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner Kevin Hurley was also critical. "This is about persuading the public to stay at home to save lives," he said. "How much better if the commissioner had just walked around the corner into one of the estates at eight o'clock and started clapping?" END

  18. The Met Police is to hold an "urgent" review of a rape case after being accused of failing to disclose vital evidence. Liam Allan, 22, was charged with 12 counts of rape and sexual assault but his trial collapsed after police were ordered to hand over phone records. A computer disk containing 40,000 messages revealed the alleged victim pestered Mr Allan for "casual sex". Prosecution barrister Jerry Hayes accused police of "pure incompetence". The charges against the criminology student were dropped three days into the trial at Croydon Crown Court when Mr Hayes took over the case. 'Villain to innocent' It is understood police had looked at thousands of phone messages when reviewing evidence in the case, but had failed to disclose to the prosecution and defence teams messages between the complainant and her friends which cast doubt on the allegations against Mr Allan. The CPS said it offered no evidence in the case on Thursday as there was "no longer a realistic prospect of conviction". Mr Allan told the BBC he was "overwhelmed" at the moment, adding: "It's a huge amount of confusion to go from being the villain to being innocent." He also told The Times he had suffered two years of "mental torture... I feel betrayed by the system which I had believed would do the right thing — the system I want to work in." Read Full Story

    Written Exam Special Constable Met Police

    Hi Guys, Can anyone guide me as to what written exams I will face, for the the written exam for a Special Constable for the Met Police ? Many Thanks Simon
  22. Officers who Tasered a man armed with two knives 11 times, hit him with a car and shot him used reasonable force, the police watchdog has found. Metropolitan Police officers fired on Joseph Hive several times with a stun gun in Brent, north-west London on 8 October 2015. When the Taser had no effect, they struck him with a patrol car before shooting him. Mr Hive, 30, was later taken to hospital with chest and arm injuries. The police had been called after Mr Hive had been seen wielding two blades in the street. Officers later reported that he had refused to drop the knives and was a danger to himself and others. 'Further force' Mr Hive was armed with two knives and a screwdriver and later convicted of possession of offensive weapons and common assault, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said. The IPCC's investigation found the officers had used "necessary and proportionate" force. IPCC commissioner Cindy Butts said: "Officers were faced with a man armed with knives who seemed intent on using his weapons on a public street. "They needed to stop him from causing serious injury or death to them, a member of the public, or himself. "Taser was fired a total of 11 times. The man was found to be wearing extra clothing, which we believe reduced the effectiveness of Taser on at least one occasion. "Yet he still posed a real danger to officers, leaving them with no option but to use further force." Source - BBC More detail here
  23. Police will use facial recognition software to scan the faces of tens of thousands of revellers at this year’s Notting Hill carnival even though civil liberties groups believe such an action would be discriminatory. Full Story - Guardian " But critics say the use of real-time biometric tracking has no basis in law and that the plan to deploy it during the carnival is institutionally racist, as it targets Britain’s main annual African-Caribbean celebration" How is it racist? The police are trying to clamp down on the extreme large scale violence we get every year at this event, if large gangs of black youths were not causing issues every year there would never be any need for facial recognition software.
  24. Image captionThere are currently 73 operational police station front counters, down from 136 since 2013 Half of London's police station front counters will close under new plans announced by the Mayor of London. Sadiq Kahn said budget constraints had left him "no choice". Scotland Yard estimates it will need to make £400m of savings by 2020 under current funding. Under proposals each of the Met's 32 boroughs will be left with one 24-hour counter. There are currently 73 working counters, down from 136 since 2013. Conservatives said the mayor was using government funding as a "scapegoat". London Assembly member Gareth Bacon said: ""The fact is the Met has found three quarters of the savings it requires and no announcement has yet been made about future funding." Mr Khan set out the new plans in a consultation document on public access and engagement published on Friday. City Hall says that closing "poorly used" front counters will save £10m each year - equivalent to the cost of 170 police constables. Since 2010, the Met has had to find £600m of savings. Image copyrightREUTERS Image captionSadiq Kahn said current funding left him "no choice" but to close half of London's police front counters Some 8% of crimes were reported at police front counters in 2016, down from 22% in 2006, according to official figures. About 70% of crimes are reported by phone. Under the plans, remaining police buildings will get upgraded IT services while frontline officers will be provided with tablet computers - in an an effort to boost the reporting of crime online. Mr Khan said: "The huge government cuts to the Metropolitan Police Service have left us with no choice but to take drastic action to protect the frontline of policing. "My top priority is keeping Londoners safe, and every pound saved by closing a front counter is a pound of savings that we do not have to find by reducing the frontline." Image captionSince 2010, the Met has had to find £600m of savings and estimate they will need to find another £400m in the next three years When former mayor Boris Johnson cut police station front counters in 2013, Mr Khan criticised the move, suggesting Londoners could be forced to report crime at police "contact points" in McDonald's restaurants. The Home Office said Scotland Yard has had a "broadly flat" budget since 2015. A spokesman said: "There is more money and more officers for each Londoner than anywhere else in the country. "This government will continue to ensure that the Metropolitan Police have the resources they need to cut crime and keep our communities safe." The public consultation is open until 6 October. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40607533
