22 June 2023 19:28 Met officer guilty of outraging public decency A serving Met police officer has been found guilty of outraging public decency.

A Metropolitan Police officer has been found guilty of outraging public decency following a trial at Stratford Magistrates’ Court.

DC Dariusz Alexander, attached to the Roads and Transport Policing Command, was convicted following the trial which concluded today, Thursday, 22 June.

He was given a conditional discharge for six months; ordered to pay costs of £625 and a victim surcharge of £26.

He was arrested following an off-duty incident in Hampstead in March.

Detective Superintendent Christina Jessah, in charge of RTPC, said: “We know this incident understandably caused some concern and a thorough investigation was carried out by detectives.

“This ultimately led to DC Alexander’s conviction and misconduct proceedings will now take place.”

On Saturday, 18 March, two Met officers were carrying out enquiries relating to an incident which had occurred several days earlier in a park in Hampstead.

As they were searching the area, one of the officers noticed a man looking at him while exposing himself.

They approached and identified themselves as police officers before arresting him. During a search, a warrant card was found identifying him as a Met officer. He was off duty at the time.

DC Alexander was suspended from duty with immediate effect and charged in April.

A referral was made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct who said a local investigation should be carried out.

Misconduct proceedings will now take place.
