The IPCC produced two reports on the Stockwell shooting.
The first – Stockwell One Investigation (pdf 1.35MB) into the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell underground station on 22 July 2005 – was published on 8 November 2007. It incorporates 16 recommendations, which had been sent to all interested parties in March 2005.
The 16 recommendations have or are being implemented. For instance, the IPCC criticised the previously accepted practice of officers conferring together before writing up their notes of firearms incidents. The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) recently issued fresh guidance to officers on avoiding conferring. The command and control structure was criticised and this has now been clarified. Communications did not work on the underground system.
The second report was entitled Stockwell Two (pdf 656KB): An investigation into complaints about the Metropolitan Police Service’s handling of public statements following the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes on 22 July 2005.
The Stockwell Two investigation was carried out by investigators from the IPCC’s Coalville office and reported in August 2007.
