Main article content
In full compliance with the National Police Chiefs’ Council historical data wash, City of London Police checked every* police officer, staff member and volunteer run through the Police National Database (PND), to identify any intelligence or allegations that needed further investigation.
The results for the City of London Police were ‘no criminal investigations’ and ‘no misconduct investigations’ arising from the historical data wash. From 1,535 employees, thirteen were identified as needing a vetting review, with further enquiries concluding seven of those did not need further action and the remaining six subject to appropriate actions, including re-vetting.
T/Chief Superintendent Sanjay Andersen, Head of Professionalism and Trust at the City of London Police said:
“The City of London Police is committed to upholding the highest standards of service and our values of professionalism, integrity, and compassion.
“We have ensured full compliance with the historical data wash, meeting every deadline in the process to check our staff against the Police National Database. We support this important part of the process to build trust and confidence in the vital work of our police officers, police staff and volunteers.
“We welcome more regular checks to identify behaviour falling below the standards we require in policing and have introduced processes to check all staff against the Police National Database.”
*All officers, police staff and volunteers working for the City of London Police by February 2023 were included in this historical data wash.
The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) historical data wash began on the 27 January 2023 and concluded on the 29 September 2023. Full access to national data from the historical data wash can be found on the NPCC website.
