IOPC announces re-opening of investigation into the MPS handling of the Barking & Dagenham murders

The LGBT Advisory Group welcomes the IOPC decision to re-open their investigation into the MPS handling of these cases.
 
We are continuing to make sure  community concerns are heard by the police, highlight shortcomings and push for improvements in the service offered to the LGBT+ community.
 
We are working with the MPS to implement the recommendations of the IOPC and the coroner. We are pushing for resources for more proactive community engagement in the boroughs, more consistent access to independent advice throughout the MPS and most importantly a culture shift in all ranks of the MPS.
 
We are also assisting in Baroness Casey’s review of the culture within the MPS and the HMIFRCS review.
