‘They [the police]You can modify the process of vetting, but that’s just one part. To regain the trust of women, they must do more.

“The counsel they offered Wayne Couzens after he was convicted of a crime was completely absurd, and their way of policing the matter was criminal. [Sarah Everard] vigil was even worse. This attitude is inherited from the top, so there are huge changes needed.

“It will take much more to fix all these problems.”

Couzens was given a full life term. Met had previously advised women that they should flag down the bus when they feel uneasy being stopped by a man officer.

Sara Maleaux (27), from Tooting said: “I’ve never had any problems with the police but, after this year’s events and the Met’s response to protest, I have a new way of looking at police.”

Olivia Lesscombe (41), from Balham in south London said that it was difficult because police do a hard job.

“They must do all the necessary checks, but what should they do if somebody lies to them?”

“I think the majority of officers are trustworthy, but there is a problem in how they are perceived and viewed by the public.” This cannot continue as it is. I wish it could be solved.

Shazza Shah, a 29-year-old Tooting resident, stated that it’s not because he didn’t believe in the police. He [Couzens]Although it was only one officer, I don’t think anyone would distrust all of them because of that one horrible incident.

“Yes, I have made mistakes but, overall, I trust the police.”

Jackie Corbett (58), of Tooting Bec said: “I believe that the whole police force can be trusted. We have to trust the majority of officers to be honest and good people trying their best.

“You can get bad people at any job but police notice more when someone does an awful thing.”

“They are able to access people with a lot power and they have great access, it’s terrible that this is used for criminal activity.

Investigators will need to investigate the nature of the conviction and when it occurred, as well as if there was a pattern of behavior.

According to the documents, people who have been granted a County Court Judgement or are currently bankrupt are also most likely to be blocked.

Danielle Macken from Norbury added that ‘It is important that the police be out in the area talking with people about this process.

“It needs to be transparent. I’m sure they’ll receive some positive feedback.

“There should be greater interaction between police officers and citizens because of the large divide that exists right now.”

One officer at the stands stated that the Met was hiring approximately 6,000 officers in the cadre of its recruitment drive.

It details the three-year programme in which rookie cops can earn around £30,000 a year and patrol the streets from day one of the course.

Only GCSE grade C or higher in English and Maths is required to be accepted into the degree program.
