A misconduct investigation by the Met’s Professional Standards has concluded into the actions of officers leading up to the death of Nashon Esbrand.

Mr Esbrand, who was 27 and from Upper Holloway, was pursued by youths on pedal cycles and fatally stabbed in Islington on Thursday, 24 August 2017.

Following the stabbing the family raised questions relating to how the police dealt with him in the prior two years leading up to his fatal stabbing.

Nine crime reports were subsequently reviewed by officers from the Met’s Professional Standards and this identified five crime investigations that required closer review.

As a result of the review six officers were subject to a misconduct investigation.

At the conclusion of that investigation the Appropriate Authority determined that none of the officers had a case to answer in misconduct or gross misconduct. Two of the officers were issued with management action under the unsatisfactory performance procedure and three others received individual learning.

Mr Esbrand’s family have been informed of the outcome.
