PC David Carrick, an armed officer who served with the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command and worked on the Parliamentary estate, now faces a total of 53 charges, including 27 counts of rape.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the new charges relate to six counts of rape, one count of false imprisonment, one count of indecent assault and one count of possession of a firearm with intent to incite fear of violence relate to a new complainant and are believed to have taken place in July 2003.

The CPS said on Thursday it had authorized Hertfordshire Police to charge Carrick with the nine additional offences.

This is in addition to the 44 offenses Carrick has previously been charged with against 12 different women.

In all, the defendant is now charged with 53 crimes against 13 women between 2003 and 2020, including:

Carrick, 47, will appear in court for the first time on Wednesday November 30 at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.

He is due to appear before Southwark Crown Court on February 6, 2023 on the previous 44 counts.

The Metropolitan Police said the charge related to possession of a firearm predates Carrick’s service in an armed police role.

The Met said: “We recognize that these are extremely serious and worrying allegations.

“In the course of the investigation, references were made to the Independent Bureau of Police Conduct.

“The Met’s Directorate for Professional Standards continues to monitor developments closely and will do its utmost to support Hertfordshire officials.

“National regulations dictate that any misconduct trial must await the outcome of the criminal case.”

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the new charges relate to six counts of rape, one count of false imprisonment, one count of indecent assault and one count of possession of a firearm with intent to incite fear of violence relate to a new complainant and are believed to have taken place in July 2003.
