RASASC welcome news of an inquiry, launched by the Home Office to look into issues within policing following the conviction of Wayne Couzens.
The Home Secretary launched the inquiry following Couzens’ conviction, after the serving Metropolitan Police officer abused his powers to falsely arrest, rape and murder Sarah Everard.
The inquiry will be made up of two parts. The first part will examine Couzens’ previous behaviour and look at any missed opportunities, and the second part will address specific issues that may be undermining public confidence in policing such as vetting practices, professional standards, discipline and workplace behaviour.
RASASC hope that the results of the inquiry will lead to a zero-tolerance approach to misogyny and all forms of sexual violence within workforces across the UK.
