Question

The Metropolitan Police has stated that their 'policy' of 'Neither Confirming Nor Denying' the identity of undercover police officers is important to protect officers safety and is a lifetime guarantee. Please could you let me know what steps were taken by the Metropolitan Police Service to protect the families of the children whose identities were used by undercover police officers during their deployment from the potential harm of being tracked down by people the officer associated with while undercover?
