POLICE AGENCY APPEAL
Barbara Gray, Assistant Commissioner for Professionalism at London’s Metropolitan Police Service, said of Carrick, “We should have identified the abusive behavior pattern earlier, but because we were unable to do so, we missed opportunities to remove him from the organisation.”

Crown Prosecutor Jaswant Narwal said Carrick’s “level of humiliation of his victims was unprecedented in his 34 years of professional life”.
