Answer for Police Disapproved Register

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Ninety Metropolitan Police officers have been added to the College of Policing Disapproved Register for breaches of the Standards of Professional Behaviour pertaining to Honesty & Integrity, Orders and Instructions, Use of Force, Authority, Respect & Courtesy and Discreditable Conduct.

All officers on the register have been dismissed from the service, whether they have retired, resigned or who were subject of gross misconduct findings.  From January 2015 the rules changed and officers can now no longer retire or resign whilst under gross misconduct investigations, unless they are given specific permission from Chief Officers or DMPC.
