Serial rapist Carrick receives 36 life sentences. How many more like him remain in the police?

Last Updated: February 7, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

I can’t start this article in a better way than by quoting Women’s Aid Chief Executive Farah Nazeer, discussing the 36 life imprisonment sentences handed down to former Metropolitan Police officer David Carrick.


told the BBC that while the jail term was an “acceptable sentence in a very, very unacceptable situation”, she added that it came 17 years, 12 victims and at least 85 offences too late.

At least 85 offences too late!

Here’s a video report on the sentencing:

How was a man like that allowed to become a police officer?

How was it that complaints about him were ignored?

How many more animals like him are currently wearing police uniforms?

How many Met Police officers are currently under investigation? Isn’t it 800, or thereabouts?

How can we be sure more offenders aren’t being ushered into police ranks, to fill the Tory government’s demand for – what is it? – 20,000 more officers?

So how can we believe any high-ranking policeman who claims their service will now change for the better?

Here’s Met Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley:

Do you believe his protestations that he will change the service he leads?

And here’s Detective Chief Inspector Iain Moor, an officer at Hertfordshire Police, the force which investigated David Carrick, along with Peter Burt, Senior District Crown Prosecutor for CPS Thames and Chiltern, discussing their part in bringing Carrick to justice.

“He can’t harm them [again] or any other woman.” That’s not true, though. The psychological scars stay with the victims forever, blighting their future lives and relationships.

It has always been the duty of police services around the country to ensure that creatures like Carrick are rooted out before they are ever able to use their privileged positions to cause harm and these police services have failed, time and time again.

They cannot give us any guarantees of good future conduct because their record is so shocking that one would hesitate to discuss it.

They certainly may not even request that we continue to put our trust in them. Trust must be earned.

Am I right?

    It is very worrying that so many evil people are recruited into the Police these days. What is needed is better qualified senior officers who are supervising the selection of recruits. Everyone in the “promotion chain” has to re-evaluate their role. Not so much “Is it good for my career” but “Is it in the interest of the public that we serve”. Too many supervisors want an easy ride and are constantly seeking “backslapping” compliments for achieving what usually doubtful figures fabricated to boost their promotion chances and personal egos. For example senior officers much prefer to have a reported crime classified as ” No Crime” rather than have an arrest made that substantiates that a crime was committed. I know because I was in charge of the Beat Crimes Section at west End Central in the 1970’s and I was removed because I was unwilling to falsify the figures. Under my supervision the percentage of crimes solved rose but the number of “No crimes” fell. Personally I think it is more important to be honest and inform the public of what is happening.
