Sentencing study confirms doubts police were informed about evidence in 2011
The findings by a review of police surveillance and complaints investigations are „completely inconclusive“ a바카라nd suggest officers were not properly informed about their powers, the Review Council said.
It said the report found there was a lack of proper training, supervision and 더킹카지노support for those charged with making complaints about police activity, including an „increasing lack of confidence“ among staff that they have access to relevant information.

The review of police activity and complaints, launched by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) in April, found complaints about crime dropped by half, the number of reports of misconduct to the IPCC from police fell by two-thirds and the number of complaints filed with police against officers fell by 43%.
