The vigil for Everard, who was murdered by Met officer Wayne Couzens, was held when London was under tier 4 COVID restrictions.
It's been a year of partying, protests and a heavy dose of social anxiety.
The increase comes after many forces had previously not been taking complaints about abuse of power seriously.
The Metropolitan Police have again been criticised for the latest plan to try to regain public trust following the murder of Sarah Everard by serving officer Wayne Couzens.
Advice issued in the wake of the sentencing of a police officer for the murder of Sarah Everard to “call 999” or “wave a bus down” if you’re unsure if a cop is genuine has provoked anger.
Wayne Couzens was sentenced to a whole-life term, meaning he will likely die in prison.
The Old Bailey heard how Wayne Couzens used his police ID and handcuffs to kidnap the 33-year-old Londoner, before raping and murdering her.
Wayne Couzens, 48, had previously admitted the kidnap and rape of the 33-year-old, who disappeared after walking home from a friend’s house.
A London police officer pleaded guilty to raping Sarah Everard. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Appearing at the Old Bailey, PC Wayne Couzens accepted responsibility for killing Everard, who disappeared as she walked home from a friend’s house in south London in March.
The government claims it's not a u-turn.
An official report says the Metropolitan police acted appropriately in breaking up the vigil for a woman who disappeared while walking home, despite their actions being widely criticised at the time.
