Two Met officers charged over crime scene photographs

Published: 28 Apr 2021

Following an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) investigation, two Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) officers have both been charged with one count of misconduct in public office in relation to allegedly taking photographs at a crime scene in Wembley last June and subsequently sharing them.

Police Constable Jamie Lewis and Police Constable Deniz Jaffer, based on the MPS North East Command, are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Thursday 27 May.

The IOPC conducted a criminal investigation following a referral from the MPS on 19 June after the deaths of Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry.

In October 2020 we referred a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has now authorised the charges.

All concerned parties have been notified.
