Met Police Officers Keep Jobs Despite Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Main image to the post Met Police Officers Keep Jobs Despite Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Two police officers have been allowed to keep their jobs despite engaging in inappropriate touching of younger female colleagues during drinking sessions. This has sparked outrage among women's campaigners, who are calling for a change in police priorities and the dismissal and prosecution of all sexual offenders, including those working within the police force.

The incidents involve DC Brett Cooley, who was found to have touched a female trainee officer's breasts and made inappropriate comments about her sex life, and Sergeant Daniel Fletcher, who was found to have put his finger down the back of a junior female colleague's shorts. Both officers received relatively light sanctions, with Cooley receiving a final written warning and Fletcher a demotion.

Women Against Rape has criticized the misconduct panels for downplaying what they consider to be sexual assaults, arguing that these incidents should have been investigated criminally. Former Met officer Alice Vinten has also expressed her disbelief, stating, "So, in the Met, you can sexually assault someone and keep your job. How is this possible?"

Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley has pledged to end misogyny within the Metropolitan Police, but these recent incidents raise serious questions about the effectiveness of his efforts. The Met Police is seeking legal advice on whether they can apply for a judicial review of the panel's sanction in the case of Mr. Fletcher.
