Dear Ms Hughes,

Re: Your request

Thank you for your email dated 11th March 2010, which you make a request
for
information which I now confirm receipt of.

I would like to inform you that there will be a delay in responding to
your request.
The reason for this delay is because the IPCC has over recent months
seen an increase
in the number of information requests it receives and this has in effect
caused a
delay in responding to requests.

I would like to assure you that your request is being processed and once
a decision
has been finalised you will be contacted. I would like to apologies for
the delay and
hope that this does not cause you any inconvenience.

Yours sincerely

Athena Cass

I have personal 1st hand bitter experience of the IPCC ignoring witnesses, ignoring evidence, & simply handing complaints over to internal Devon & Cornwall Constabulary police professional standards units, who carry out no investiigation at all. (How can they when witnesses are not interviewed!)

There is in my experience a bias by IPCC towards & in favour of covering up police criminality & dishonesty.

I have written an OPEN LETTER to the newly appointed Police & Crime Commissioner for Devon & Cornwall Constabulary concerning the real problem of police corruption & criminality in how police complaints are mishandled & covered up by IPCC & internally by police.

OPEN LETTER to D&C Constabulary PCC may be read here http://pinkpasty.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/...

(PS: I know what police are sometimes referred to as, but our new Devon & Cornwall Constabulary PCC really is called 'Mr A Hogg'. Absoloutly No joke!)
