Officers being investigated over handling of Stephen Port


Officers under investigation for their response to the Grindr serial killer, Stephen Port, have reportedly refused to answer questions when he was interviewed by the police. All but one of seventeen Met Police officers have declined to freely answer questions from the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) which is conducting a probe into how Stephen Port’s murders were handled. 16 officers used the so-called ‘no comment right’ instead of giving the prepared submitted statement. One officer has since resigned from the force, meaning there would be no means of sanctioning them even if they were found to have failed in their handling of the case. In a statement to the BBC, IOPC Regional Director Sarah Green said: “Our investigation is nearing completion, and I will need to consider the final report carefully before coming to any view on its findings. We continue to keep the families of Stephen Port’s victims, and the officers under investigation updated on our progress.”
