Operation Kalmia Published Documents

The request was partially successful.

Dear Independent Police Complaints Commission,

On the 4th October 2017, the IPCC. Published the Final Report into Operation Kalmia, and a number of other documents detailing the correspondence between the IPCC and Staffordshire Police concerning representations made in relation th recommendations concerned in the report.

Whilst the publication of the documents is a welcome step towards openness and transparency, the omission of the correspondence between the IPCC and other appropriate authorities is disappointing and a little difficult to understand, why Staffordshire is being dealt with differently is unclear.

I under the terms of the FIO Act, I would like to request the following:

1. Copies of all correspondence between the IPCC and the other Appriopriate Authorites in Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire and the West Midlands, relating to Operation Kalmia and the recommendations contained within the final report.

2. Copies of all the remaining correspondence between the IPCC and Staffordshire that have as yet not been published, relating to Operation Kalmia and the recommendations contained within the final report.

Yours faithfully,

Mr L. Anderson

Police watchdog (IPCC) ‘racist and corrupt’

The Met’s Olympics poster girl is suing the complaints commission, claiming it frustrates inquiries to protect accused officers

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which investigates misconduct and racism, is riddled with corruption and discriminatory practices, according to a whistleblower.

Carol Howard, a former investigator at the police watchdog who was the Metropolitan police poster girl for the London 2012 Olympics, claims senior executives “believe their duty is not to investigate officers but to protect the reputation of the police force concerned and its senior officers in particular”.

She also says that some investigators at the watchdog secretly support the racist police officers whom they are investigating. As a result they try to “frustrate, delay, restrict and close down investigations” to protect the targets of their inquiries.
