‘She’s as shocked as the rest of us!’ Cressida Dick’s resignation has been demanded by Tom Winsor, but she has refused.
Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Tom Winsor, has dismissed calls for Cressida Dick to resign over Sarah Everard’s death.
Following the murder of Sarah Everard, Wayne Couzens was sentenced to life in prison. Couzens had a terrible moniker, which was known to the Metropolitan Police and Met Chief Cressida since the incident. After allowing him to “slip through the net,” Dick is now facing rising demand to quit.
Couzens, 48, allegedly kidnapped Miss Everard, 33, as she walked home from a friend’s house in South London on March 3 with his Metropolitan Police warrant card and handcuffs, according to the Old Bailey.
Couzens was dubbed “The Rapist” by his police colleagues, according to the report.
Despite criticism of Cressida Dick’s handling of the incident, Tom Winsor, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary, argues she should not quit as Met Police Commissioner.
“She’s one of the most accomplished and far-sighted police chiefs the police has had in living memory,” he remarked on BBC Newsnight on Thursday evening.
“She, like the rest of us, is outraged by the brutality and evil of Couzens’ crime, and she is in a unique position to offer the Metropolitan Police with the leadership and stability it requires to change its vetting methods, which have improved over time, and to tackle this problem.”
Dame Cressida, on the other hand, is under increasing pressure to retire.
Harriet Harman, Labour MP and the Mother of the House of Commons, is leading this initiative.
Ms Harman told Shelagh Fogarty of LBC that she should “recognize that it is in her best interests for her to leave.”
She said, ” “The warning indicators on Sarah Everard’s killer were missed on her watch.
“We need an immediate investigation and suspension as soon as a complaint is made.”
The Met is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IOPC) for allegedly failing to investigate two flashing instances linked to Couzens that occurred three days before he killed Sarah Everard.
Cressida Dick was chastised for her management of vigils held in memory of Everard, and film of attendees being arrested after the Metropolitan Police decided to disperse the throng was made public.
Four people were arrested on suspicion of violating the Coronavirus Act 2020 as well as public-order violations.
“Brinkwire Summary News” has Cressida Dick as its Commissioner of Police.
