Two Police Constables Sacked After Death Of 17 Year Old 

Published

on

Two police constables have been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service today, Thursday, 4 February, for Gross Misconduct following the death of 17-year-old George Verrier.

PC Claire Derbyshire and PC Peter Cruise faced a public misconduct hearing for breach of Standards of Professional Behaviour, relating to Honesty and Integrity, Duties and Responsibilities and Discreditable Conduct.

After the hearing held over four days, the panel found cases against both officers to be proven.

George Verrier died following an incident in 1 September 2013 in Southborough Road in Bromley.

Following this incident, the MPS made a voluntary referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

The IPCC directed the Metropolitan Police Service to carry out a local investigation into contact between officers and George following the incident in the early hours of Sunday 1 September.

As a result, four police constables based at Bromley Borough at the time of the incident were interviewed by the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS).

One police constable subsequently received local management action and one police constable received local management advice.

The remaining two, PC Derbyshire and PC Cruise, faced the misconduct board and were subsequently dismissed without notice.

On 1 September 2013, PC Derbyshire and PC Cruise dealt with George Verrier after he was assaulted in Southborough Road, Bickley.

It was found that both officers conducted no or insufficient enquiries regarding the identities or particulars of the victims, suspect and witnesses.
It was also found that PC Derbyshire and PC Cruise failed to ascertain the victim was 17-years old and that other young men were at the scene who had been drinking with juveniles.

It was further found that both officers failed to result the incident properly and knowingly made misleading and inaccurate reports of the outcome.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Fiona Taylor said: “George’s death must have been heart-breaking for his family.

“At the very point George needed the Metropolitan Police service, these officers let him down causing his family even more distress.

“Their actions clearly fell far below the standard of professional behaviour we expect from our officers and they failed to assist someone who was clearly in need of their help.”

In October 2014, a teenager was convicted of manslaughter of George Verrier.

Benjamin Hayes, 18 (30.12.1995), of Constable Mews, Bromley was found guilty of the manslaughter of 17-year-old George Verrier, on 1 September 2013 in Southborough Road Bromley.

He was jailed for four and half
