Jennette Arnold
London assembly member for North East London — fighting your corner at City Hall

On 21st of June Jennette Arnold questioned London’s Deputy Mayor for Policing Stephen Greenhalgh about reports that at least one officer in the Metropolitan Police’s Sapphire Unit were held on 13 misconduct charges. The charges include allegations that they failed to perform their duty in investigating rape and sexual assault cases, falsified entries on the police’s Crime Report Information System and falsified records of Crown Prosecution Service decisions which had never actually been referred to the CPS.

Deputy Mayor Greenhalgh had advised the Metropolitan Police Commissioner not to attend the meeting and was unable to answer the very serious questions.
