Former Bexley deputy police borough commander suspended over misconduct allegations
BEXLEY'S former deputy police borough commander has been suspended from his new post over allegations of misconduct.
Merton’s top policeman Darren Williams was suspended from duty yesterday following complaints from fellow police employees relating to his conduct. The matter is now under investigation by the Directorate of Professional Standards.
Detective chief superintendent Darren Williams, who joined Merton in February 2012 from Bexley, has served as an officer for 26 years.
A police spokesman confirmed there will be no further details given that may confirm the identity of the complainants.
He said: "The matters were raised by Metropolitan Police Service employees, and relate to inappropriate behaviour. We are not prepared to say anything that may confirm the identity of the complainants.
"The MPS expects all officers and staff to maintain the highest standards of conduct, where they fall short of this standard we will take the most appropriate action."
