Metropolitan Police Service Report (4 days in August)

Metropolitan Police Service Report (4 days in August)

Published by Global News Agency
The riots report entitled "4 days in August" states that the "phase red" instruction to mobilise all units across London on that Saturday night was not followed. The order was issued by the officer in charge of the Met's Public Order Command.

But instead an amber alert was relayed which meant all available resources were simply identified but not activated.

The report states there was an hour's delay before the mistake was rectified when the officer arrived in the special operations control room to discover the failure to issue the instruction.

The 145-page report also analyses what warnings were picked up following the police shooting of Mark Duggan.

Strategic Review into the Disorder of August 2011
 
Metropolitan police Service | Strategic review into the DiSorDer of auguSt 2011 - final report / 3
I cannot conceive that there is a single person inthis country who was not affected in some way bythe events of last August; the Duggan family, thosewhose lives and livelihoods were damaged or destroyed by the violence that spread across London,those who chose to engage in criminal acts, thosewho watched, heard or read events unfolding on
the media or the many police of cers and staff who
worked tirelessly to deal with the violent scenes.This review is the Metropolitan Police Service’sassessment of what happened, importantly
containing our key  ndings and recommendations,
detailing what work we have undertaken and willcontinue to take forward in the future.Since August we have worked alongside all of theother reviews to ensure that there is a measuredassessment of what happened and we will continueto participate fully in these processes.We remain committed to calm and consideredanalysis undertaken in a mature, open and whollytransparent way as the communities of Londondeserve nothing less. I continue to feel immensely
proud of the many of cers and staff who did their 
duty over those four days and beyond, in our bestattempt to protect London and its people. From thesewholly unprecedented events there are clearly thingsthat we would do differently in the future or wherewe will have to enhance or invest in our approachand I, and my Management Board, will carefullyconsider those plans as they come forward to ensurewe are best placed to protect London in the future.Bernard Hogan-Howe, QPM, MBA, MA (OXON)Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis
