Global News published this video item, entitled “Sarah Everard’s murder spurs calls for change to UK police culture” – below is their description.

Calls are growing for changes to policing in the U.K. after a former London Metropolitan Police constable, 48-year-old Wayne Couzens, was sentenced to life in prison for the kidnapping, rape and murder of Sarah Everard earlier this year.

In response, the Met Police urged women to take caution when interacting with lone police officers.

As Redmond Shannon reports, amid the questionable advice, women’s right campaigners say it’s the police who need to change their behaviour, not the public.
