A review into the standards of behaviour and internal culture of the Metropolitan Police Service.
Recognising the grave levels of public concern following the kidnap, rape and murder of Sarah Everard by a serving MPS officer and other deeply troubling incidents, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) appointed Baroness Louise Casey to lead an independent review of our culture and standards of behaviour.
The review began in February 2022. It expects to finish its work by February 2023, when the final report and recommendations will be published.
The review will:
find out whether the Met’s leadership, recruitment, vetting, training, culture and communications support the standards the public should expect
recommend how high standards can be routinely met, and how high levels of public trust in the Met can be restored and maintained
