LONDON, UK- London's police force on Monday, January 16, 2023, publicly apologised after a former officer admitted to raping and sexually assaulting a dozen women over nearly two-decades.

"I apologise to all of David Carrick's victims. We have failed. I'm sorry," London's Metropolitan Police Commissioner Mark P. Rowley said in a video attached to the tweet. "He should not have been a police officer. I have promised action. Integrity is our foundation – the Met will become ruthless at rooting out those who corrupt it."

David Carrick, 48, pleaded guilty to 49 offenses, including 24 counts of rape and charges that included assault, attempted rape and false imprisonment in connection to the attacks that took place over a 17-year period. The officer, who joined the force in 2001, previously served with the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command.

The department apologised to victims after it emerged that nine allegations of rape and other crimes were made against Carrick from 2000 to 2021. He was suspended from the force after his arrest for a rape complaint in 2021.

"This man abused women in the most disgusting manner," Rowley said.

Britain's PA Media news agency reported Carrick admitted in court to raping nine women, some on multiple occasions over months or years, and to having locked some of his victims in his home without food and forcing them to clean his house naked. He said he whipped one woman with a belt, urinated on some of the victims and told them when they could eat and sleep in a pattern of violence and controlling behavior.

Police officers under the microscope

Meanwhile, all police forces have been ordered to search for sexual predators and domestic abusers in their ranks, in a major review sparked by the horrific crimes of Carrick, The Independent reported today, January 18, 2023.

It said in a similar check, the Metropolitan Police has found more than 1,000 serving officers and staff who have had complaints against them in the past decade but faced no action at the time.

The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) is writing to all forces in England and Wales to check their officers and staff against national police databases.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) is seeing a record number of UK officers employed, according to information from the latest Standing Finance Committee Report.

It is unclear if they will also be screened.

The RVIPF is led by UK national Mark Collins.

    VINO keep doing news releases of what is happening in the UK so our people can see the hypocrisy in their UK officials' criticism of the people of the BVI. Keep educating those who do not look at news in the UK so they can see their double standards and hypocritical actions to the BVI.

    Please research and find the interview when this evil Mark Collins (UK placed Head of police) said that the RVIPF do not have any screening process like the UK to hire police officers and he will be implementing such. These people think we are fools and trying to make us afraid to speak due to abuse of their powers.

    Not good news but good to know this information because from how some of these people speak of the UK it never occurred to us that there is crime of this nature there, especially in the police force.

        The English police are imprisoned if they do wrong. Here our locals are kept in their jobs. Oh, and this particular cop hasn’t been found guilty in court. He confessed but many people confess to crimes they have t committed. I think he’s guilty but nobody but he knows the truth until he trialed.

    I move a motion for the BVI to do a COI in the management of the UK police force and the popr handling of crime and the procedures used to hire police officers by those in authority over the force in the public service. Then I move another motion that the BVI passes an Order in Council to suspend their powers to deal with these matters any longer and have the BVI in charge until they are fixed how the BVI wants them fixed. This move should balance the modern partnership. All in favor....Aye.

    To all of you who have the UK as saviors please know that crime in the police force and overall is so bad in the UK that in certain areas when crime is committed they do not bother to report it as the police does not have the resources to deal with it. Do you know that many chief of police in the UK are crying out to these same UK officials who want to take us over through dictatorship for money and resources as their budgets are being cut and crime is now rising out of control. Corruption in the force and prison is at an all time high in the UK. Don't let them fool us. Please wake up BVI.

Someone can break into your house and live there and the police can't do anything do your research and don't tell me nothing. I have wisdom,understand, and knowledge so don't test me

    The current Commissioner of Police always speak as if crime of this nature and worse among other crimes only happen in the BVI and only by Caribbean expats and locals in the police force and otherwise. Let us see if he makes a video of this to help their tourism industry.

      Not just their culture, its human culture, India rape capital of the world, Africans having sex with monkeys created aids. China committed genocide many times over, Congo pedophilia is rampant. UK, USA, EUROPE, sodomy is legal and promoted in schools. It's a crazy mad world. The Caribbean is the sanest, normal part of the world in my opinion and we don't want outside influences. Find a local COP.

      You need to get some sleep. Seriously.
      Your outlook on life is unhealthily negative.
      Truth is there are good ppl and bad everywhere in the world. If someone bad in England is found it doesn’t mean we don’t have bad ppl here that need to be exposed. The same thing applies to good people in all countries.

    Uk police comes here to lockup our folks before cleaning their own backyard and that is very shameful(read the story well dont be shy

    the very same set of people that kept your forefathers and my fore parents in the hot sun

    The very same great britian that helped whipped and shackle our people have returned to tell us what to do, not to mention what our country is doing wrong

    slavey was wrong but how quickly some blacks forget: there is not much that can be done by the people of the virgin islands that can be compared to the United Kingdom and their killing of our ancestors just to make money before 1834

    Killing off your family members just to be in the sugar cane trade: killing of your family members just to be in the cotton trade is far worst than money laundering or dope trafficking

    The UKs apology is phony. They deliberately allowed this SCUM and his cronies to do this for so long shows they ok’d it. An apology is a waste of time and an insult to everyone to think it would be accepted . Call it what it is, a Major Coverup of demented crimes perpetrated by rouge cops and higher ups. And yet they talk about the BVI as though they don’t have any problems.
