Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick promised to “work extraordinarily” to investigate her role in investigating allegations of Westminster Pedophile Circle.
The mayor of the London Police and Crime Bureau was referred to Dick the police watchdog last week for dealing with Operation Midland following a public complaint.
She was responsible for overseeing a senior investigator who claimed that Carl Beech’s claims – which subsequently proved false – were “trustworthy and true.”
According to the Radio 4 program, it is today: “Of course, if someone has a complaint against me or anyone else, it is able to file a complaint, and it is advisable that the office may refer the mayor to the IOPC. I will, of course, work extremely well with the IOPC and see what happens.
“I’m sure I’m sorry about the” trustworthy and true “sentences. I apologize for this happening in a couple of weeks while I was sitting over Operation Midland overseeing a senior officer. “
In response to suggestions that some people demand that officers face severe consequences, Dick said, “I’m sure some people would like to tip their heads.”
In an extensive interview on Friday, Dick said she recognized that they could learn from the London Bridge attack in November when 28-year-old Usman Khan – who was convicted of terrorism in 2012 – killed two people and injured two others earlier, as he was shot by the police.
She revealed that anti-terrorism officers had killed 25 fatal attacks since 2017 and that the force was dealing with 800 live investigations.
However, she added: “Sometimes it is very difficult to know what someone intends. Sometimes people are extremely private, and we have had cases of them in the last few years when someone wanted to do a fatal attack or even tried, and there was no sign of anyone else. ‘ “
In the week of eight murders in London, at the end of the year that has been the most murdered in the capital for more than a decade, Dick said he wanted more public debate on the use of technology to fight crime.
According to police officers, social media is already monitored in accordance with the law. “We see that gang tensions sometimes happen very publicly, and if we do, if there is a threat to life, we will intervene,” she said.
“In the future, there will be ways to look at data that we have or that other people have, and that we will be able to link to people, places, and objects in a way that could potentially be of some concern to some.
“And there we have to have a debate, we have to involve the government, we will have to have new laws in the future.”
