Logan Peters killed himself following Devon and Cornwall police custody

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Devon and Cornwall Constabulary,

Can you let me know the names of the officer / officers who failed to address Mr Peters' complaint about force used and the unauthorized strip search at Charles Cross station in Plymouth.

Was the standards department involved in not recording the complaint.

Is there a culture of police officers at Devon and Cornwall police not recording complaints.

Was the officer / officers ordered not to record the complaint and if so by who?

What actions have Devon and Cornwall police taken to ensure this does not happen again to a vulnerable adult like Logan Peters or Thomas Orchard.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dev...

What training have Devon and Cornwall police officers had to deal with vulnerable adults, can I have a copy of the course material. What % of Devon and Cornwall police front line officers have had training to deal with vulnerable adults for the last three years by year.

Yours faithfully,

G Bourke

p.s. if Devon and Cornwall police make any false accusations against me or threaten me in anyway I will take legal action against the individual concerned and Devon and Cornwall police.

Dear Steve,

Can I request an internal of this response. I know there is an IPCC investigation into Logan Peters death, however this is not a reason not to provide the information that I have requested in Q1, I am asking Q1 in the public interest, to safeguard vulnerable children and adults, I would not like any other vulnerable person who tries to make a complaint about the excessive use of force not to have their complaint recorded.

Therefore it is in the Public Interest to identify these officers, It is a safeguarding question and it is in the public interest so members of the public know who these officers are . The IPCC investigation is separate and will take a long time.

This is a safeguarding issue, the fact that your officers are being investigated by the IPCC does not give D & C police the right to withhold information.

I am a little bit surprised that the officers who attend courses is not digitized and all records are paper.

Thank you for your initial response,

Yours sincerely,

G Bourke

Dear FLETCHER Ian 57014,

Thank you for your response, can I now further clarify my FOI request.

''What training have Devon and Cornwall police officers had to deal with vulnerable adults, can I have a copy of the course material. What % of Devon and Cornwall police front line officers have had training to deal with vulnerable adults for the last three years by year.''

I understand from your answer, this will take more than 18 hours, can I ask the exact reason why, is it because, staff training is kept on paper records, or is it because the Information system is unable to run reports.

1. Can you let me know the training courses available for front line staff to deal with vulnerable children or adults, I specifically want to know about mental health training courses.

2. Where you are able to, can you run reports for the % of Devon and Cornwall police front line officers have had training to deal with vulnerable adults for the last three years by year.'' if the IT system enables this, if you can only do this for a certain amount of courses, please can I have this information.

3. Where you are unable to produce these reports can I ask for the IT strategy where there is a timeline to produce these reports.

It is extremely concerning that your force is currently unable to produce the information I request.

Yours sincerely,

G Bourke
