In response to the Independent Office for Police Conduct’s decision to discontinue the investigation into the alleged conduct of PCC Steve Turner, Chief Executive of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Lisa Oldroyd, said:
“We have been made aware that the IOPC-managed investigation into a third party allegation against the conduct of PCC Steve Turner has been discontinued, after no further lines of enquiry were identified.
“I would like to thank the Commissioner’s team for their continued professionalism and commitment during this difficult period.
“The PCC’s vision has always been clear – that Cleveland residents should have an efficient and effective police force to protect vulnerable people and bring offenders to justice. To that end, we will continue to work alongside Steve to deliver his three-year Police and Crime Plan to make Cleveland a safer place and put the pride back into Cleveland Police.”
