Newham changemaker

Matthew is the borough lead for domestic violence, hate crime and missing people. He has worked closely with key partners in Newham for several years supporting new initiatives. He stands as a reminder to residents that the police do more than just investigate crime.

“Domestic and sexual violence have far reaching and long lasting impacts on people’s health and wellbeing. Being safe in your home should be a reality for everyone. Sadly, it’s not. The quietest voices amongst our community are often those

most in need of safeguarding interventions. I hope to empower people to report criminality or wrongdoing so that we can protect vulnerable people and prevent them coming to harm.”

– Chief Inspector Matthew Casey, Metropolitan Police Service
