Dep Ass Comm Fiona Taylor, from the directorate of professional standards, said: “We are naturally disappointed that an MPS officer has been convicted of an assault.
“His behaviour clearly fell well below the high standards we expect of our officers and is it right that he was held to account in the criminal courts.”
