阿文和薩默塞特郡長關注官員未因行為不當而被解僱

阿文和薩默塞特的首席警員承認,她 "感到不舒服",她的部隊中的一些官員在不當行為聽證會後沒有被解僱,而是在 "威脅和風險得到緩解 "的情況下被調離。

她的評論是在皇家警察和消防救援服務監察局(HMICFRS)的報告之後發表的,該報告是在2021年3月莎拉-埃弗拉德被現役倫敦警察韋恩-庫森斯綁架、強姦和謀殺之後發布的。

該報告發現,數百名應該沒有通過審查檢查的警察,可能在英格蘭和威爾士的工作中。

在季度績效和問責委員會會議上,警察和犯罪專員(PCC)馬克-謝爾福德問克魯女士。"你能給我什麼保證,沒有現役警官或更廣泛的警察家族成員對警區的公眾構成安全風險?"

克魯女士回答說,自她一年前接手以來,已經對專業標準、審查和反腐團隊進行了投資。

"警長說:"我們的初步審查是強大的,我們在重新審查方面處於良好的位置,當官員和工作人員在其職業生涯的後期需要再次審查時,我們就會進行審查。

但她承認,當一名被帶到不當行為小組的官員沒有被解僱,然後又回到警隊被安置在 "實際上我們對這個人不放心的地方 "時,她感到 "不舒服",我們必須看看那些威脅和風險被減輕的角色。

克魯女士說,她將確保部隊正在做或將做國家報告中建議的一切,"除此之外,如果有任何其他我們需要做的事情來改善這種情況"。


Avon & Somerset's chief constable admits she is "uncomfortable" some officers in her force are not sacked after misconduct hearings, but moved where "threat and risk is mitigated."

Her comments follow the HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) report, which was ordered after Sarah Everard's kidnap, rape and murder in March 2021 by serving Met Police officer Wayne Couzens.

The report found hundreds of police officers who should have failed vetting checks, may be in the job in England and Wales.

At a quarterly performance and accountability board meeting, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Mark Shelford asked Ms Crew: "What reassurance can you give me that no serving officer or member of the wider police family poses a security risk to the public in the constabulary area?"

Ms Crew replied that there had been investment in professional standards, vetting and counter corruption teams since she took over a year ago.

"Our initial vetting is strong and we are in a good place with our re-vetting, when officers and staff need to be vetted again later in their career," the chief constable said.

But she admitted she was "uncomfortable" when an officer taken to a misconduct panel, is not dismissed, and then comes back into the force to be placed "somewhere where actually we aren't comfortable with that person being, and we have to look at roles where threat and risk is mitigated."

Ms Crew said she would ensure the force was doing or would do everything recommended in the national report and "over and above that if there is anything else we need to do to improve that situation".
