Police reform: Will the Casey inquiry lead to cultural change?
Baroness Louise Casey is to lead a review into culture and standards at the Metropolitan Police. With public trust in police nationally at an all-time low, what questions should she ask and what measures are likely to elicit change?
When the Metropolitan Police recently advised women – fearing for their safety after the murder of Sarah Everard as she was walking home – to flag down a bus or demand identification if an officer approaches them, it was described as laughable. Public trust in those working for the police, and not just in London, is at a low.
