“4 Days in August” - MPS Strategic Review into the August Disorder 2011
The Metropolitan Police Service’s report into the summer disorder, “4 Days In August”, is released today following a comprehensive internal review.
You can download the final MPS report into the summer disorder from the MPS website.
The MPS review of the August 2011 disorder is leading to widespread improvements in the MPS with the report outlining in detail when and where events occurred, what the MPS response was, what went well, what didn’t and what changes continue to be made as a result.
The overriding theme from the report is that despite many thousands of officers putting themselves in the line of fire and working almost around the clock to try to protect London over the four days. The MPS engagement, intelligence and operational response plans were not sufficient to prevent or respond to the unprecedented scale and speed of the unfolding disorder in the summer.
The MPS has sought to take as comprehensive a view as possible in compiling this report to provide an accurate reflection of events and lessons to be learnt.
Whilst this is the final report of this review, having previously published the interim report in October 2010, extensive work continues within the MPS in order to take the recommendations forward.
Please forward this to any of your contacts who you think would like to be aware of the report.
