Many people will be aware that I support the publication of the report into Operation Pomeroy and I have written to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) to ask them to publish it.
I have been advised by the IPCC’s legal team this morning that publication of the report could cause a real risk to the outcome of a second managed investigation being conducted by another Force on behalf of the IPCC, and they are therefore not publishing it at this time.
I would however, like to reiterate the following points in relation to the investigation:
Sometimes mistakes are made, and it is up to us to apologise when we get it wrong. What we need to focus on is continuing to reduce crime, protect the public and serve our communities. I know through my feedback from community meetings that members of the public are supportive of their local police, and I hope that this continues.
