Misusing police resources (and position) to harass/stitch-up members of the public

The request was partially successful.

Dear Devon and Cornwall Constabulary,

1) What measures are in place to prevent officers abusing their position by committing police resources to harass/stitch-up etc., members of the public who have got on the wrong side of officers serving with Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, for example, by exposing corruption/misconduct?

2) What position of seniority would an officer serving with Devon and Cornwall Constabulary need to hold for it to be feasible for him/her to be successful in carrying out this kind of abuse?

Yours faithfully,

H J Wilson
