Recommendations - Metropolitan Police Service, May 2023

Published 07 Sep 2023

We identified organisational learning from a review of a local investigation by the Metropolitan Police Service into a complaint of use of force and discrimination involving a man diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The officers’ failure to adapt their response to the man’s needs left him believing he received less favourable treatment.
