Poe you have said what I was thinking yesterday, If he had given any intimation that the Mc's are suspects and then something bad happened think how pilloried he in particular and the police in general would be

Yes Poe has spoken good sense and is right - thanks Poe - I too feel more optimism after thinking about Poe's comment.

Sometimes we just build our hopes up for justice to happen quickly - but it takes time and good solid evidence

It is very encouraging, really-
Particularly:

Our relationship with the Policia Judiciária is good. We continue to work together and this is helping us to move forward the investigation. Excellent - it was only not good when the UK was trying to find a whitewash..

The inquiry has been, and continues to be helped and supported by many organisations and individuals. I wonder who ?- Forensic teams probably We acknowledge the difference these contributions have made to the investigation and would like it known that we appreciate all the support we have and continue to receive.

We will not comment on other parts of our investigation - it does not help the teams investigating to give a commentary on those aspects. No - take all the time to get it right and dont let the Mc Canns know what you're up to

I am pleased to say that our relationship with the Portuguese investigators is better than ever and this is paying dividends in the progress all of us are making. Great - you've reinforced that point

However, right now, new appeals or prompts to the public are not in the interest of what we are trying to achieve. No, secrecy is key here However the work carried out by Portuguese and Met officers in reviewing material and reopening the investigation has been successful in taking a number of lines of interest to their conclusion. That work has provided important answers. Fantastic

Right now we are committed to taking the current inquiry as far as we possibly can and we are confident that will happen.

This is the second time I've seen Rowley mentioned as senior counter terror officer,what was he doing commenting on the Grange debacle.

Meanwhile, Britain’s most senior counter-terror officer has delivered a stark warning to ministers over the impact on forces as they attempt to contain the unprecedented threat. Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley suggested other policing priorities in England and Wales could be at ‘significant’ risk if resources are diverted to fight terrorism.

Does the above mean they're not looking for a live child? No point appealing for sightings? No point in looking for witnesses cause they know who knows what happened? What are they trying to achieve that appeals or the public can no longer help with? IMO

A very interesting quote DDL, where is it from? It does seem to suggest that they have gone beyond the abduction theory or at least that they no longer expect to find Madeleine alive, doesn't it?

Given the speed at which they have been progressing the investigation, I don't think they ever expected to find a live Madeleine.

According to Wiki

He joined the National Criminal Intelligence Service as a Detective Superintendent.[6] During his time serving in the NCIS, he led the development of covert operations to combat organised crime.[5] In 2000, he joined Surrey Police as a senior officer when he was appointed Chief Superintendent in command of the West Surrey Basic Command Unit.[7][6][3] Starting in 2002, he led the five-year investigation into the murder of Milly Dowler.[6]

In November 2003, he was promoted to Assistant Chief Constable.[3] His responsibilities originally included local policing, crime reduction and criminal justice, but in 2005 his role changed and he became responsible for major and organised crime.[8] He was promoted to Deputy Chief Constable in 2007.[8] He served as temporary Chief Constable of Surrey Police from March 2008.[3] He was appointed Chief Constable of the force in March 2009.[5] From 2009 to 2011, he was a member of Association of Chief Police Officers Cabinet.[6]

He reached the short list of four candidates to become head of the new National Crime Agency but lost out to Keith Bristow.[9][10] He joined the Metropolitan Police Service as Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations in October 2011.[11][12]



Is it because he was DCC in 2007, so sort of 'in charge' at the time MM disappeared, or is that explanation too simple ?

I could go with the Dr Roberts story - but doubt the McC's would have any involvement or knowledge. If there is a connection the McC's must have (wrongly) believed themselves so important to have such govt and police involvement never realising something big (unconnected to themselves) was occurring at that time. Just imo.

Well Mark Rowley won't be reflecting much longer (thread title) he is retiring in march.  Isn't that when Operation Grange funding ends too. Question




Britain's counter-terrorism police chief Rowley to retire



LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s top counter-terrorism police officer Mark Rowley will retire in March, the Metropolitan Police Service said on Tuesday, after a 31-year career in which he led efforts to curb a rise in militant attacks.


Rowley was the public face of the police’s counter-terrorism operations as attacks in Britain soared to their highest ever level last year, and he spearheaded the response to deadly incidents such as the London Bridge attack and the Manchester concert bombing.

Interior minister Amber Rudd thanked Rowley for “his commitment to tackling the terrorist threat” during his time as national policing lead for counter-terrorism, a role he has held since 2014.

“His leadership was especially apparent following the attacks last year when he provided the public with reassurance that we were being kept safe,” Rudd said in a statement.

Rowley joined the police in 1987. Before becoming Britain’s counter-terrorism chief, he had responsibilities for tackling organised crime and sexual violence, and changed the force’s approach to public order following riots in 2011.

He said that while his career had been rewarding, heading up Britain’s counter-terrorism efforts had been the “greatest privilege.”

“It was immensely sobering, but none the less the greatest honour for me, to lead the response to last year’s terrible events in Manchester and London, where I witnessed the extraordinary bravery and compassion of UK policing,” Rowley said in a statement.

How interesting. Wiki doesn't give his age, but he would be about 52, which is young to retire.
Maybe has been made a better offer from somewhere else.

From the MET.

http://news.met.police.uk/news/assistant-commissioner-mark-rowley-announces-retirement-from-the-met-289016

Mark Rowley, the Met's Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations and national lead for Counter Terrorism Policing, has announced his intention to leave policing to pursue new challenges.

He will be retiring from policing after 31 years’ service, from joining as a constable in West Midlands Police in 1987 to leading the UK national Counter Terrorism Policing network at a time of unprecedented threat.

After serving as Chief Constable of Surrey Police he joined the Metropolitan Police Service as an Assistant Commissioner in December 2011 where he oversaw work in areas including organised crime, sexual violence and other major crime. Most importantly he took on responsibilities for changing the Met’s approach to public order and countering gangs in the wake of the 2011 riots.

In June 2014 AC Rowley was appointed as head of MPS Specialist Operations and national lead for UK Counter Terrorism Policing – the day before Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced the establishment of a so-called “worldwide caliphate”.

Since that time AC Rowley has been at the forefront of driving forward UK policing efforts to counter and mitigate the threat from Daesh as well as from other terrorist groups and violent extremist threats, including working with MI5 and other intelligence agencies to successfully stop 23 attacks since the murder of Lee Rigby in Woolwich in 2013 – including 10 since March 2017. The transformation he has led has enabled CT officers to double the number of arrests made as they work to counter the terrorist threat - in the last year there were 460 arrests. Mr Rowley led policing through the tragic events of 2017, where all of these capabilities were deployed and robustly tested and found to have saved lives.

A keen advocate throughout his service for community policing and the Prevent programme, AC Rowley was instrumental in transforming CT policing capability, through boosting preparedness, command and control doctrine, specialist counter terrorism armed policing, and increasing join-up with community policing, while furthering the already close working relationship with MI5 and other intelligence partners.

Announcing his retirement from policing, AC Rowley said: “I am as proud of the police service today as I was when starting on the beat in Birmingham in 1987. Every day I continue to witness the selfless, unwavering commitment of all involved in protecting and serving the public.

“I really have loved every role I have performed, but three stand out for me: those first days as a West Midlands police constable; and later as Chief Constable of Surrey, an innovative force delivering pioneering community policing. However, my time in the Met, leading the National Counter Terrorism Policing network at the most extraordinary time has been the greatest privilege.

“I am incredibly proud to have led Specialist Operations and the CT Policing Network, and will always be in awe of the men and women who have worked tirelessly over the last few years to help keep the public safe, whether they were safeguarding vulnerable people against radicalisation, boosting the protection and security of people and places, or by pursuing record numbers of terrorists to stop their attacks. Their commitment when the threat has evolved and grown so dramatically has been truly extraordinary.

“It was immensely sobering, but none the less the greatest honour for me, to lead the response to last year’s terrible events in Manchester and London, where I witnessed the extraordinary bravery and compassion of UK policing. It is therefore no surprise to me that Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services recently noted, the public’s confidence in the police to protect them against terrorism has, in the toughest year in decades, increased markedly.

“It has also been a privilege to have worked with two talented Met Commissioners, numerous Chief Constables around the country and an outstanding Director General of MI5 throughout my tenure. I now plan to catch my breath and then pursue fresh challenges.”

The MPS Commissioner Cressida Dick has praised AC Rowley’s contribution to policing London and the UK. The Commissioner said: “Mark will be a huge loss to policing. He has dedicated himself to protecting and serving the public and should be immensely proud of everything he has achieved.

“Mark has always been a fantastic colleague, and I am personally very grateful to him for the support his has shown me since my return to the Met.

“He has been a thoughtful, innovative and skilful police officer and leader in West Midlands, Surrey, the Met and the national counter terrorism network.

“Over the past few years he has built the capability of UK’s counter terrorism policing to one that is envied around the world.

“As the threat has developed he has led officers and staff in London, the UK and around the world so we are able to do everything possible to take on the terrorists who want to destroy the freedom and democracy we all enjoy.

“He led us through the attacks this summer providing a reassuring, calm and effective response to the tragic events.

“I wish Mark well for the future and we should all thank him for the leadership and professionalism he has given policing throughout his career.”

AC Rowley will continue to lead Specialist Operations and the national CT Policing network until March where upon his successor will continue this critical national security role. The process for his replacement will begin in due course.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: “I want to thank Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley for his commitment to tackling the terrorist threat during his time as national policing lead for counter-terrorism. His leadership was especially apparent following the attacks last year when he provided the public with reassurance that we were being kept safe.

“Mark leads from the front, having won the respect of both his colleagues and peers. He works tirelessly to protect us, while ensuring justice is served to those intent on causing us harm. Working with the security services, his time leading counter-terrorism policing has seen many potentially fatal terrorist plots foiled.

“I am grateful to Mark for his long service and I look forward to working closely with him until his retirement from policing in March and wish him every success for the future.”

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Over 31 years of service Mark has risen through the ranks from his beginnings as a beat Constable in the West Midlands to Assistant Commissioner at the Metropolitan Police and the country’s most senior Counter Terrorism officer. That progression is a testament to his skill, tenacity and dedication, qualities I have seen time and again during our time working together.

“On behalf of all Londoners, I want to thank Mark for his unwavering leadership, especially last year in the face of four unprecedented terrorist attacks in London - and for the large number of attempts he and his team were able to prevent. I wish him all the very best for his retirement.”
