IPCC Application - Appeal Upheld

In November 2006 Gordon Park Complained about Cumbria Constabulary to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The IPCC upheld Gordon's appeal against the police not recording 4 complaint points as complaints, but have allowed the police to dispense with an investigation on the grounds of a 12-month time limit.

This is after the police took 7 years to convict Gordon of a 28-year old crime he did not commit.

The IPCC gave Gordon Park a time limit of just 7 days to respond to the police's application for dispensation.

The following thread shows the dialogue between Gordon Park, Cumbria Constabulary and the IPCC. Some details have been omitted to protect witnesses.
