“One of the most shocking cases involving an officer in his position.”

David Carrick, now 48, was arrested in October 2021. He was a member of the Metropolitan Police unit responsible for protecting Parliament and diplomatic missions in the capital.

For 17 years, between 2003 and 2020, he batted. His misconduct at The Met was reported nine times. He was examined twice, and was subsequently promoted to a unit responsible for the security of government buildings and embassies.

49 crimes

On Monday, he admitted four more rapes during a trial in London, in addition to 20 other crimes he had already confessed to in December. In total, he admitted to committing 49 crimes, including 24 rapes, against 12 women. He also pleaded guilty to 9 assaults, 2 attempted rapes and 3 kidnappings.

Jaswant Narwal, Director of Public Prosecutions, said: “This is one of the most shocking cases that the CPS has ever had to deal with involving a police officer in his position.” She added: “The scale of his crimes is astonishing.”

Manipulation

“Carrick was persuasive, but also incredibly manipulative. On his first encounter, he would charm victims. He would often use his position as a police officer to prevent them from escaping or reporting him, by suggesting that their word would be against his and that they would do so.” “They won’t be believed,” Narwhal said.

A hearing on the results will be held on Tuesday. The court is scheduled to issue its ruling on February 6. More victims are expected to come.

The Met has since apologized for its negligence regarding Carrick.
