Killer cop Wayne Couzens exhibited prostitute at hotel party with Met colleagues
Killer cop Wayne Couzens exhibited a prostitute at a hotel party with colleagues from the Met.
Sarah Everard’s killer brazenly called her her “piece of brass.”
The revelations will raise new questions for Scotland Yard chief Cressida Dick about how the force failed to identify crooked Couzens, 48, as a risk.
An escort paid by killer cop Wayne Couzens showed up at his post to demand money.
Shocked colleagues at the Met called him back from the patrol and he shyly walked over to an ATM with her, later admitting she was a prostitute.
Evil Couzens – sentenced to life in prison for the kidnapping, rape and murder of Sarah Everard – also invited a prostitute to the tenth wedding anniversary of another police officer.
Both incidents add pressure to Met chief Cressida Dick over how the force failed to identify Couzens as a risk.
He was based in Bromley, south London, as of 2018.
A source said of the visit to the distributor: “This woman would not leave until she spoke with him.
“When he came back from the ATM he said she was from Eastern Europe and he couldn’t make fun of her or the people who look after her.”
A source at the birthday party at the Hilton in Maidstone, Kent said: “We knew Wayne was married and we expected him to show up with his wife. Instead, his jaws dropped when he showed up with this woman dressed way too tall.
“He was quite open about her being an escort. He said ‘My wife can’t come, so I brought this copper with me.’ ”
The source saw Couzens in the toilet and added: “He was laughing about it and said to me: ‘You know what it is, sometimes you have to pay.’.
“He always said weird things about sex. He gave me goosebumps and I was not the only one.
Sue Fish, ex-Nottinghamshire Police Chief, said: “It is sickening to think that he showed up with a prostitute would have been a badge of honor among the officers.
“That no one saw fit to raise this issue with their superiors is an enigma. “
He was quite open about her being an escort. He said ‘My wife can’t come, so I brought this copper with me.’
Couzens was also said to have organized meetings with call girls in local pubs, which was common knowledge among the officers.
In July, The Sun revealed on Sunday that he had been reported to have slapped a PC woman’s buttocks and other disturbing behavior in Bromley, but no action was taken.
It was reported that he drove around Kent naked from waist to toe in 2015, and flashed at a McDonald’s three days before kidnapping Sarah, 33, in Clapham, south London, in March.
After Bromley, Couzens joined the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Unit with specialized training in firearms.
Last night it emerged the role had given him an ‘all areas’ pass to Westminster, where he has served at least five times.
President Lindsay Hoyle told The Sunday Times he was “extremely concerned” by the revelation and would seek answers from Ms Dick.
Home Secretary Priti Patel is today pledging £ 25million through the Safer Streets fund for more patrolling, lighting and cameras in towns where women do not feel safe at night.
“Toxic culture must stop”
By Sue Fish
POLICING has a toxic belly of misogyny that we saw so graphically and tragically in the murder of Sarah Everard.
We see this happening every day in sexual misconduct against co-workers and victims of crime, in domestic violence by partners of officers, and in the occasional daily sexism.
This culture is rarely mentioned. It is also normalized, trivialized and complicit. Police and government must stop blaming women and start tackling the behavior of men who ogle, harass and abuse.
The imposition of an obligation to report low level worrying behavior concerns should also be introduced, as occurs in schools under the safeguard regime.
Officers who engage in misogynistic behavior should expect to be fired, as should those who veiled or turned a blind eye.
Police and government must act urgently to keep women and girls safe, before more time is wasted and more lives destroyed.
