ANTI-CORRUPTION: Metropolitan Police launch hotline to report corrupt or abusive officers

 Published on: 9th December 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Pinner and Stanmore residents are being encouraged to share information about Metropolitan Police officers and staff who abuse their power and position of trust.

The Metropolitan Police Service Anti-Corruption and Abuse Hotline was launched on November 29.

The hotline will be managed by the independent charity Crimestoppers and has been established to collect information about Met Police employees who are corrupt and committing serious crimes or causing harm to others.

Commander James Harman, head of the Anti-Corruption and Abuse Command, said: “There are tens of thousands of people at the Met who work hard to fulfil our duties honestly with integrity. Nothing upsets our good people more than knowing there are officers or staff abusing their powers and letting the public down.

“It is so important that the good majority at the Met can trust their colleagues, and that the public know there are clear systems in place where appalling behaviours will be challenged and addressed robustly.

“We are therefore taking this exceptional step to identify and remove anyone who corrupts our integrity from the Met. We want to reassure the heroic majority within the Met to know that corrupt colleagues will be rooted out, but also for the public to see how seriously we take abuses of power and how determined we are to rebuild trust and confidence in the Met.”

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: “I’m really proud that here in the capital we are leading the way with accountability for all our officers and staff with a free and anonymous new hotline for the public to report any wrongdoing by our police.”

You can call the hotline 24/7 on 0800 085 0000.
