Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is currently running local disclosure awareness raising with officers within the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences (CASO) Command and this will expand to other Operational Command Units. In the medium to long term the MPS  will be working with the Crown Prosecution Service and National Police Chiefs Council to provide disclosure training to all police officers, led by suitably trained and experienced staff in line with the recommendations contained within the Allan review and the National Disclosure Action Plan.
