Met Police officer told a mother he would ‘love to conduct search on her in custody’ keeps his job

Author: Yuvi August 16, 2022


A Metropolitan Police Officer who told a mother-of-one that he would ‘love to conduct a search on her in custody’ in a recorded phone call has been allowed to keep his job.

Marwa Mohammed, 28, from London, was involved in an incident on 8 June 2020, where she first met PC Andrew Turner, who was at the scene. She claims he began making inappropriate comments on her ‘shape, size and form’, and later asking her about plastic surgery she has had while at the police station.

Two weeks later the mother-of-one received a phone call from the officer to ask about an injury she sustained during the incident, before telling her ‘this call is off the record’. She told her friend sat next to her to record it as it didn’t ‘feel right’.

PC Turner told Marwa he ‘really liked her’ adding that he ‘was hoping they would let me conduct a search on you in custody’ and that he was ‘going to have to cross the line’, before proceeding to hand her legal advice.

She ended the call because she was walking into a Nando’s restaurant with a friend. Soon after the first, he called her for a second time to ask if she had ‘enough food for the two of us’.

The serving Met officer would have had to obtain Marwa’s confidential information through the police database to contact her.

In the phone call recorded by Marwa, shared with the Mirror, PC Turner reportedly said: ‘This is an unofficial call we’re giving you now. Obviously because you were such a nice person to me.

‘I saw a lot of you. At the time you have to be as professional as possible but there’s worse jobs. At least it was nice to look at I suppose with all due respect, I’m sorry if that’s offensive.

‘Got enough food for both of us? To be honest, I don’t really know what I’m like doing with this phone call. I thought that you were just a load of fun so I thought it would be nice to have a shout.

‘I’m going to have to cross the line into being unprofessional, aren’t I? You were fun to be around. I was, to put it lightly, I was hoping they would let me conduct a search on you in custody. I don’t see how you could have been able to sort of hide much, I wouldn’t have minded though.’

Marwa says that after ending the call, the officer continued to try and call her six times afterward.

She reported the phone call at a police station where she claims staff ‘did not take her seriously’ until she revealed the recording of the conversation.

PC Turner was investigated by the professional standards department who gave the officer a final warning, ruling his actions as ‘inappropriate’ and that they ‘fell far below the standards expected’.

Londoner Marwa says she is ‘shocked’ the Met Officer is still allowed to keep his job and that she has seen him on patrol since the uncomfortable phone call.

She told the publication: ‘I feel like I took it the furthest I could and even then I feel like I didn’t get any justice, seeing him out on patrol. My biggest fear now is to imagine being pulled over and it’s him.

‘I don’t like being pulled over by men full stop anyway, when they do the random checks and so on.

‘At this stage of life, If I’m being pulled over there should be a female officer present.’

Her solicitor Matthew McConville from Irving’s Law added: ‘It goes without saying that our clients (and the public in general) have the right to expect integrity in the police service and should have confidence in police officers to act in a professional manner.

‘Unfortunately, there has been a definite shortfall in the service that Ms Mohammed has received in this incident and there are grave concerns over how and the Metropolitan Police dealt with it as a whole too.’

A spokesperson for the Met told the news outlet: ‘The public have a right to expect that officers engage with members of the public professionally and not for self-serving purposes such as the pursuit of relationships.

‘The actions of PC Turner, in instigating and engaging in flirtatious conversation with a member of the public that he was having professional dealings with, was wholly inappropriate and fell far below the standards expected of a police officer.

‘The matter has been fully investigated and an independent chair has applied sanctions on the officer.’
