A Police Officer who knocked a Moped rider off his Bike will not face criminal proceedings despite a year of not knowing if the officer would keep the job they loved.

Barrister Nigel. R. Edwards QC is offering to support Police Hour readers who are police officers in his spare time who are facing similar allegations.

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 a 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.  

Police Supportive Barrister of Law Nigel. R, Edwards QC has offered all Police Hour readers who are police officers facing criminal charges for doing their job in relation to knocking off a moped rider free legal support.

Police Hour is very grateful for this level of support being offered to officers who now face criminal charges because they’ve simply been doing their job that they are trained to do in relation to hard stops.

If you are currently suspended or facing criminal proceedings then contact Police Hour to gain access to this level of support being offered to our readers.
