Damien Bendall was on probation when he committed four horrific murders.
HMI Probation has recently published its inquiry into this case, which as expected was picked up by several news outlets including Sky News and National Official Tania Bassett appearing on Channel 5.
Napo GS Ian Lawrence, appeared on Sky News to provide the union’s insight into the Inspector’s conclusions and observations into what led to this heinous crime.
Napo are also in the process of preparing a response to a London Assembly Police and Crime Committee Report into probation services in London.
Another HMIP Serious Further Offence Report is expected to be released next week.
As can be seen from Ian’s interview above, Napo has expressed our appreciation of the grief and anger felt by the victim’s families.
We have also made it clear that Napo will continue to expose the unsustainable working conditions which our members are facing given this government’s failings to listen to the warnings we have been highlighting over many years.
