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

H J Wilson made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridgeshire Constabulary

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cambridgeshire 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 Cambridgeshire Constabulary, for example, by exposing corruption/misconduct?

2) What position of seniority would an officer serving with Cambridgeshire 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
