IOPC announces charges in respect of investigation involving Essex Police

IOPC announces charges in respect of investigation involving Essex Police

Our statement following today's announcement, Wednesday, February 7, is: “The IOPC investigation relates to cases investigated by Essex Police between 2011 and 2014. We made the initial referrals to IOPC and since 2014 have made comprehensive changes to the way similar cases are investigated. Independent inspections of the force concluded in 2017 that Essex Police has made ‘significant improvements in the way in which it recognises and responds to people who are vulnerable.’

"While the ongoing proceedings mean that Essex Police cannot comment in detail on the charges or the IOPC investigation, the force has apologised to children and families affected by failings in our investigation and we reiterate that apology today.”
