Dear Bedfordshire Police,
This FOI request relates to Chief Constable Jon Boutcher and Conduct Complaint/s against him being referred to IOPC/IPCC.
OPCC Bedforshire made a referral to IOPC/IPCC concerning complaint/s against Chief Constable Jon Boutcher (by Martin McGartland).
Within that referral to IOPC/IPCC - and on page 3 - it included following (which is highlighted in yellow) ; "Referral has been made as previous agreement with the OPCC/force with IOPC that if a Chief Constable complaint is received and it mentions Op Kenova - this must be referred to the IOPC."
Under the FOIA I am requesting the following;
1. A copy (copy of original please) of the 'agreement' which is referred to in that referral and also copies of all other documents, understandings between PCC/OPCC Bedfordshire, your force (Bedfordshire Police) and the IOPC / IPCC regarding this request,
As well as the above, I would also like to know;
2. Why complaints, reasons (and the rational behind it) against Chief Constable Jon Boutcher - which 'mentions Op Kenova - must be referred to the IOPC.'?
I look forward to your reply.
Dear Martin McGartland,
I am writing in response to your request for information, received 25th
