Jay | GMP failures and corruption


My husband is a narcissist. He has abused me psychologically, emotionally, financially and sexually. I have been raped, sexually assaulted, harassed, stalked, gaslighted and controlled, all reported to GMP yet nothing has been done as I am in the unfortunate position of my husband working for the same force.

This man uses his colleagues to threaten and intimidate to make me drop allegations against him, they tamper and destroy evidence, they stalk and harass me and my family, and they gaslight me. I’ve got a non-mol against my husband which he breaches week in week out for GMP to say they won’t act despite the evidence I have of the breaches. I’ve had to escalate matters to professional standards and the IOPC to be told the process is long winded and it will take time for them to investigate, whilst all the behaviours continue. To date there are 14 investigations ongoing and he is still allowed to patrol the streets where he continues his smear campaign and play the victim despite his history of abusing and stalking his partners.

I’m now in a new relationship which he found out about and continues to make our life hell, harassing my new partner and twisting it so he could play the victim, falsifying evidence to get myself and my new partner arrested for crimes we did not commit only to be laughed at by GMP officers when they say there is no evidence of crimes being committed. I am at my wits end. Who are you supposed to go to when the people who are supposed to help are involved in the corruption?
