Special measures for the Met ? That's interesting .

That's not quite the phraseology used by H.M. Inspectorate of Constabulary , saying that it has " serious and persistent concerns " . Mentioned were the murder of Sarah Everard , the taking and sharing of images of two murdered sisters by force officers , the strip searching of several schoolgirls , and the glaring omissions in the Stephen Port case . Also noted was a consistent backlog of online sex abuse cases , and a young and inexperienced workforce . The force is now subject to an enhanced form of monitoring , known as Engage .
What do you think of this folks ?

I think, for what it's worth l, this is nothing to do with politics. More about the brutalising effect of the job, and occasionally, the kind of people attracted to it. Reply

The Met is now the sixth police service under this special monitoring, along with Greater Manchester, Cleveland, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and Wiltshire. I do not think the Met is specifically worse than any other major British police service, but sheer numbers (both of staff and the population they 'serve') and the law of averages suggests there will be more individual incidents.
I think a new head of the Met and a new Mayor will have more impact than 'engage'.

The problem definitely lies at the top imo, no real leadership or anyone serving the community as a whole. Every ‘authority’ just seems to be so corrupt and self serving at the moment. I despair. What can be done about it? Scrap the metropolitan police and start again, with society voting in the best candidates like with MPs? Might be an idea. I really don’t know what the police are there for anymore? I know of groups of people setting up their own vigilante groups because they have no faith or trust in the police. It’s a massive problem from the top all the way down. It’s so unfortunate as a lot of young police officers join to try and make a difference but the reality of the culture there must be a shock to the system? My partner’s boy wants to join and I have family members in the police too. It’s getting worse the culture not better and they are under so much pressure too :-( Unfortunately the decent ones seem to be few and fair between. Reply

Could it possibly have something to do with the fact that the Tories have axed almost 24000 police from 2010 until the present. London has lost 47% of it's force in the same period. Therin lies the problem although The Daily Mail is usually at pains to tell us that it is all due to "lefties" demanding that police cars be painted in rainbow hues! Reply

It all went pear shaped when the liberal glitterati decided to drop Force from the police and insert service,bring back the police FORCE now and get to grips with the bad boys and stop painting patrol cars in rainbow hues. Reply

I've noticed that despite their continued use of multi-million pound technology the Met Office still rarely gets the weather forecast right. With the similarity in their names, would the Met Police and the Met weather people do better if they switched roles? Reply

It is surprising how many problems are coming to light about police now. Reply

The Met seriously need to stop papering over the cracks and admit they have a serious problem inside their organisation , then remedial action can be taken to resolve the problems. Reply

They have been hopeless for a long time! Too much time drinking coffee and eating doughnuts on shift in my opinion… Reply
