Allegations of historic abuse relating to a Police recruit

29 April 2024

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into allegations of historic abuse against a Police recruit. Police conducted a criminal investigation, however, were unable to gather sufficient evidence to meet the threshold for prosecution. Police also undertook an employment process with the recruit.

The Authority is satisfied that the Police investigation was appropriate and thorough.
