Metropolitan Police officers cleared of gross misconduct following an IPCC investigation into death of Henry Hicks

Four officers from the Metropolitan Police have been cleared of committing gross misconduct when following Henry Hicks prior to his death on 19 December 2014.

The panel at an MPS public hearing today decided that the case against the officers was unproven; the panel found from consideration of all the evidence that the officers were not engaged in a pursuit and so had not breached the force’s policy on police pursuits.

The IPCC is publishing the investigation report into Henry’s death which can be found here.

A further investigation into complaints by Henry’s family about his and their treatment by MPS officers is complete and one officer has an outstanding misconduct hearing scheduled for April 2018.
