Two misconduct hearings for PC David Seager 3 weeks apart [*****Trigger Warning*****]

The request was successful.

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

I see from your website that PC David Seager who was dismissed on 28 February 2024 [Hearing 2] received a Final Written Warning on 7 February 2024 [Hearing 1]:

https://www.met.police.uk/SysSiteAssets/...

https://www.met.police.uk/SysSiteAssets/...

I am interested in why the allegations against the officer were not dealt with together, as I presume the allegations in Hearing 2 were known before the date of Hearing 1.

Please provide information to explain the circumstances in which additional allegations can be added to the allegations already decided that an officer must face at a particular misconduct hearing.

Yours faithfully,

J Roberts

Metropolitan Police Service (MPS)

London, you have a problem with women: trust towards the police in England

17/4/24

'Using a survey of multiple waves of over 8000 combined respondents conducted from July 2022 to September 2023, we find that in the parts of England outside of London, only 44% of women trust the police. However, when we look at London itself, this figure drops to 34%. In other words, Baroness Casey’s scathing assessment of the Metropolitan Police Force probably overstates levels of trust in the police. Across England, the region with lowest levels of trust in the police is London. Furthermore, while women generally trust the police more than men do, we find that this is the opposite in London. p2

Our findings place a further perspective on the findings in the Casey review and suggest that the problem is much more substantial.' p13
