A serving London police officer has admitted conducting a series of attacks on women including 24 cases of rape, making him one of Britain’s most prolific sex offenders in a campaign that ran for more than 17 years.
The Metropolitan Police apologized and said it should have spotted the pattern of abuse after David Carrick, 48, pleaded guilty to a total of 49 charges relating to 12 victims, including 24 counts of rape between 2003 and 2020.
Commissioner Mark Rowley has been appointed as the head of London’s police force to clean it up, vowing to sack any officers who are corrupt, racist and who have broken the law.
“This is devastating. It’s devastating for the victims that have had to go through pain and suffering at the hands of a serving police officer.” Met Assistant Commissioner Barbara Gray said.
In response to the news, British Home Secretary Suella Braverman said that standards and culture in British policing need to change and said that there’s over “three billion pounds worth of government money which has been put forward as part of our recruitment drive to improve the vetting and recruitment processes of new police officers.”
