The Met Police: Is policing politically impartial?

Heard this story on the radio on the way back from the funeral. She is 54 and has had a 36 year career. Therefore I'd bet my mortgage that she has transferred into the Met ;)
36 years pension, substantive rank of superintendent, won't need to worry where the money is coming from
 
Telegraph states that she is on "restricted duties" after having been convicted of a criminal offence, there really is one rule for management & another for everyone else in the Met.

I’ve seen her about but that was prior to the actual guilty verdict. Imagine she’ll be suspended pending her appeal. If that fails will be a gross misconduct hearing with The BCU needing a fourth new Superintendent!

Bit of a shit choice, get your idiot sister nicked or give her a bollocking and hope it goes away. I’ve already warned mine I’d be straight onto 101 if they were ever stupid enough to send me kiddie porn regardless of reason.

Not really. When any officer is convicted of a criminal offence, there is a formal displinary process that has to be undertaken. She will probably be fully suspended now, pending any appeal. Even if the officer receives a custodial sentence, a hearing will take place in absentia. In the vast majority of cases the outcome will be dismissal without notice.

And loss of benefits?

Why would she lose the benefits that she has paid into for decades? It’s the courts decision on her punishment and The Mets on whether to continue to employ her.

It would appear that she has served for some time with credit and she should exit with what she has lawfully accrued.
 
And loss of benefits?
If you mean pension, it rarely happens, I think. Pension will be paid commensurate with the service accrued up to dismissal. The age of the officer and the number of years service might prevent them from drawing their pension until some future date, however.

A criminal conviction does not reflect the years of good service the officer may have given up until the point where they went off the rails. They will also have contributed a fair whack themselves. I think it was 11.5% of salary in my day. I think it might even be more under the new scheme.
 
Now having got home and read the attached articles, keeping benefits sounds fair enough. The (ex-)officer probably has some sort of civil case against her sister too, if the reporting is accurate. Presumably Williams is the smart one of the family. [EDIT: although it should have been obvious that other people had been sent the message too, hence the only acceptable course of action was to make it 'official' rather than 'family'].

It does open the possibility of a lot of scrotes using burner-phones to send inappropriate material to those whose careers will be ended by possession of it.

Now that's a sweet new variation on the old classic of shitmailing porn to the SSM.

Beg to differ in my day I had a number of colleagues investigated , invariably they were suspended from duty as soon as they were charged and even after having been found not guilty in court took a while to be reinstated to duty. They were all male white constables, sergeants and inspectors though.
