Allegations of sexual assault by the police have risen significantly in recent years.
We are dealing with a number of compensation claims that are being made both by members of the public and other serving police officers.
According to an investigation carried out in conjunction with Channel 5, police officers are being accused of rape at an alarming rate of one a week.
Precise statistics have not been published but over the past five years over 300 police officers have been reported for rape and 500 for sexual assault.
Sarah Everard’s murder by serving Met police officer Wayne Couzens has focused attention on the problem and has in particular highlighted the consequences of inaction by police forces when reports of misconduct are raised.
Unfortunately serious cases of sexual abuse and sexual assault by the police continue to hit the headlines, including this case involving a former police officer who was sent to prison for a minimum of 12 years for child sexual abuse.
