The Metropolitan Police Federation - and the officers we represent - are pleased to see the contents of this letter from the Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley.
Police officers have no concerns at being held accountable for their actions but this oversight must be fair and balanced and take into account the training officers receive and the roles they are lawfully asked to carry out.
Those forensically looking at the actions officers have to take in split seconds - with the benefit of hindsight - should also not take years to conclude their investigation.
Colleagues should not fear for their liberty and livelihoods for simply doing the job the public expect of us. We look forward to playing a full part of any review.
