DEPRAVED Wayne Couzens could have been sexually harassing women for decades – with cops now begging victims to come forward.
The Met Police are investigating whether the monster, 48, committed even more crimes after he was caged for life yesterday for Sarah Everard's brutal murder.
They are now urging any potential victims to come forward with information, as a profile against the killer cop grows.
A spokesperson told The Sun Online: "As you would expect we continue to make enquiries to establish whether he has been involved in other criminal offences.

"As these investigations are ongoing we are unable to go into further detail although, at this time, we have not identified anything that is of the same level of seriousness as the crimes he has been sentenced for.
"We are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about any criminality they believe Couzens was involved in."
After he was charged with Sarah's murder, it emerged Couzens slipped through the net despite colleagues knowing he had indulged his dark fantasies.
The first incident against him was reported in 2002 – before he joined the police.
Couzens also allegedly exposed himself in a McDonald's in South London on February 28 – just three days before Sarah's murder.
A similar indecent exposure claim against him was also made in Kent in 2015.

But a catalogue of errors allowed vile Couzens to roam free and murder Sarah.
Even more chilling, there are now fears the monster will have struck before murdering Sarah.
Criminology Professor David Wilson said he has "no doubt" that police will be trying to link the warped killer to other unsolved crimes.
The Professor Emeritus of Criminology at Birmingham City University, described Couzens' actions as "very controlled and very practised".
He told the Sun: "They don't suggest to me the behaviours of someone who is simply demonstrating his first offence.
"The behaviour is clearly part of his sexual fantasies. They don't come all at once but in dribs and drabs.
"Everything about what happened on that night suggests to me that Couzens will have offended before."
Professor Wilson also pointed out that at the age of 48, it would have been "very, very late" for someone to suddenly act on their depraved sexual fantasies.
The expert even described the use of police equipment – including handcuffs and the police belt later used to strangle Sarah – as a "fetishized element".
Professor Wilson added: "In the weeks leading up to the abduction and the weeks prior to the murder he was found indecently exposing himself.
"One of the biggest learning points that I keep saying: indecent exposure is a serious offence that is an indicator of more serious offences.
"He also had a nickname, 'The Rapist'. Colleagues obviously understood something wasn't right about Couzens.
"All of this suggests to me that Couzens will have offended before."
Couzens presented himself to the world as a dedicated elite diplomatic protection officer with a wife and two children.
But his best efforts to conceal his true self were not enough and red flags had started to be raised.
His creeped-out colleagues branded him "The Rapist" and knew he had a sadistic interest in violent porn.
And after his arrest over Sarah's murder, the family man persona the monster tried creating began to crumble.
The married dad-of-two was revealed as a sex pest who watched "brutal" porn and contacted escorts as he began indulging in his sexual fantasies.
Just one month before he kidnapped Sarah, he contacted a sex worker going by the username "escourtbabygirl".
Couzens is understood to have taken the girl to a B&B in Dover just 20 minutes from his family home to pay for sex.
One former pal even claimed Couzens had a 14-year-old girlfriend when he was 23 – giving an earlier insight into his deranged state of mind.
He also set up a Match.com dating profile under his middle name Michael claiming he was separated despite being married.
A backlash against the police is growing and there are mounting calls for Met ChiefCressida Dick to quit in the wake of the tragedy.
Police have even been forced to release information on how potential suspects can tell if an undercover officer is on duty after it was revealed Couzens used his position as an officer to snatch Sarah from the streets.
The 33-year-old was walking home from a friend's house on March 3 when she was stopped by the monster, who accused her of breaking Covid rules.
After putting a handcuffed Sarah in the back of his car, she was driven 80 miles to Dover where she was raped and strangled with a police belt.
Couzens then burnt her body and dumped her in a pond to be found a week later.
WEB OF LIES
Chillingly, he had been prowling the streets to "hunt a lone female to kidnap and rape" for a month before ambushing Sarah.
Even after his arrest, Couzens fiendish fantasies came into play when he spun an elaborate web of lies in a ludicrous attempt to dupe officers.
The story centred on his insistence he had "no choice" but to kidnap Sarah, who was a stranger to him, for the human trafficking gang.
He claimed he was in "financial s**t" and was unable to pay for a prostitute he met in a Holiday Inn in Folkestone so was ordered to find "another girl" otherwise his family would be harmed.
He was repeatedly asked if he knew where Sarah was as her "family and friends are worried about her".
But the sicko denied murdering her, saying: "If I could do something to get her back this minute, I would.
"I'll do it again tomorrow if it meant saving my family… these guys meant business."
CAGED FOR LIFE
Shockingly, Couzens was not given enhanced vetting when he joined the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Unit in February 2020 and also did not serve his full two years on probation in September 2018.
Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave has admitted a check when Couzens transferred to the Metropolitan Police in 2018 was not done "correctly".
Couzens yesterday joined the grim ranks of criminals in the UK who will die behind bars after receiving a whole life tariff.
Lord Justice Fulford imposed the rare order, which just 61 criminals in the UK have, as he abused his position as a police officer.
The judge said: "Sarah Everard was a wholly blameless victim of a grotesquely executed series of circumstances that culminated in her death and the disposal of her body.
"She was simply walking home.”
