'Police Not PC'

A recent investigation into complaints made against police has revealed that only 1% of complaints are being upheld by forces. The study revealed that only 77 out of an approximate 8000 complaints in England & Wales were successful. It also showed that 3 forces upheld no complaints of a combined 702. These were the Greater Manchester Police, North Yorkshire Police and Lancashire Constabulary.

The television show “Dispatches”, on Channel 4, explained that 59 officers with at least 4 complaints held against them had not been sanctioned. It also uncovered that a police officer who, was labelled racist by a civil court in 2003, appears to still be serving in the Metropolitan Police.

The research was done under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and looked at complaints between 2005 and 2012.
