Police officers accused of taking bribes in major corruption probe

by | Sep 16, 2015 | Corruption, Government | 0 comments

A number of police officers and security-firm bosses are the focus of a major corruption investigation centred on allegations that police took bribes to press clubs in central London to use bouncers from certain companies.

Seven people, including three police officers, have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office.

The arrests are part of an ongoing police investigation, dubbed Operation Joseph, being led by detectives from Scotland Yard’s Directorate of Professional Standards.

In a statement confirming details of the arrests, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards Anti-Corruption Command continue to examine allegations of corruption by Westminster Licensing Officers and inappropriate relationships between police officers and people running local businesses.”

A police sergeant, 42, nicknamed “the Sheriff”, and a constable, 55, dubbed “the Gruffalo” due to his 18-stone bulk and fondness for free meals, are at the centre of the claims, according to a report on the Buzzfeed website.
