No criminal proceedings for officer knocking teenager off moped
An investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has completed its report on an officer who knocked a 17-year-old of his moped.
It has said that it will not be referring the matter to the Crown Prosecution Service.
The incident occurred in the early morning of November 17, 2017 in South London.
The suspect, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered a serious head injury and fractured foot.
The IOPC is now discussing its findings with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).
A spokesperson for the IOPC said “We have sent our report, and our decision on whether we believe misconduct proceedings should follow, to the MPS and it would not be appropriate to discuss our findings until this process has concluded.”
The MPS announced in November it is using a range of tactics to crack down on moped crime, including knocking them over to prevent suspects from escaping.
