FIRST EVER SUSPENSION OF ACPO RANK OFFICER

The Metropolitan Police Authority has appointed an independent senior

police officer from another force to investigate allegations against

a senior officer of the Metropolitan Police.

The authority has exercised its discretion to suspend the officer

with immediate effect, pending the outcome of the investigation.

The investigation concerns alleged non-compliance with Metropolitan

Police Service internal procedures by the officer and it does not

involve any other officer or any third party.

As is customary in disciplinary matters, the authority is not

prepared to discuss specifics regarding the allegations or officer

concerned.

NOTES

1. Allegations against ACPO rank officers within the Metropolitan

Police are investigated by the Metropolitan Police Authority's ACPO

conduct sub-committee. Please note this is an MPA sub-committee of

the MPA professional standards and complaints committee and NOT a

committee of the Association of ACPO.

2. The ACPO conduct sub-committee role:

- To investigate and deal with any allegations, reports and

complaints about the conduct of officers of ACPO rank in accordance

with appropriate regulations.

- To consider all matters relating to discipline against ACPO rank

officers, within police regulations.

3. This is the first time the authority has exercised its discretion

to suspend an officer.
