Misconduct hearing concludes No case to answer for both officers

In January 2015 the Independent Office for Police Conduct  (IOPC) completed an independent investigation into the surveillance of Janet Alder in 2000, which found evidence of a case to answer for gross misconduct for a Detective Sergeant and an acting Detective Sergeant.

The report was referred by the IOPC to the CPS who concluded there was not enough evidence to prosecute the officers.

Humberside Police complied with the direction from the IOPC’s to convene a hearing for gross misconduct against the two officers.  This hearing has now concluded with a result of ‘no case to answer’ for both officers.

Detective Chief Superintendent Judi Heaton of Humberside Police said: “We know that this has been a distressing time for Ms Alder and her family.   We do understand her frustration that the exact details around the case have not been able to be established.”

A statement of reasoning by the independent Chair of the hearing will be made available in due course.
