IOPC, how Independent are they really?

Are the IOPC (formerly the IPPC) truly independent?

The answer is quite simply, No.  The IOPC is as ‘bent as a banana’.

Take for example the former police officer, Carol Howard who, after leaving the MET Police, joined the IOPC.  Irrespective of the reasons that Carol Howard left the MET police, the IOPC took on an ‘ex-police officer‘ to work in the IOPC, to investigate serving police officers.  How can that be ‘independent!

There is no suggestion that Carol Howard has any allegiance to police, on the contrary, she left due to bullying by the very organisation that should have protected her.

The issue is, Carol Howard could have some good friends in the police that she would have a bias towards should they be investigated.  Alternatively, after being bullied by the police, she could, in fact, have a bias against the police.  Either way, she is not a suitable candidate for an organization that should be neutral and truly independent.

Carol Howard has now left the IOPC in main due to reporting corruption in this ‘independent’ organisation.  She has stated a number of alarming statements.

She says that the IOPC “believe their duty is not to investigate officers but to protect the reputation of the police force concerned and its senior officers in particular

She also alleged that some investigators at the IPCC secretly support “racist police officers” they are investigating. As a result, they try to “frustrate, delay, restrict and close down investigations” to protect the targets of their inquiries.

This website fully supports Carol Howard, she appears to be one of the few decent cops that are bullied, this no doubt in part down to Carol (and other bullied officers) not conforming with the ‘unwritten‘ rules many police forces follow, abusing their powers.

A new website is under development to show the TRUTH about the IOPC.  The site is and is not affiliated with the IOPC.  It is to show the ‘dark side’ of the supposed Independent Office of Police Conduct…

  2. I have made many IOPC reports of police alleged wrongful actions , assulting people as a MIND Advocte . Every single one was dealt with by ex police officers who did their utmost to cover up and dismiss the complaint

  3. I was prosucuted with what the police knew was fake scam evidence, but they made out was genuine.

  4. Look at the Rhys Bonner case . Heartbreaking Russell Davidson case [My brother was supposed to have committed suicide . Even saying it makes me angry . It also makes me sound like a pathetic person who can’t accept fact . ALL THE FACT S were HIDDEN from our family because we are so pathetic we are being protected from it all . Utter LIES . Police are protecting Police because right from the off there were MASSIVE failings and they knew it. One hr before my brothers death , He was spotted outside with two very tall men at either side of his escorting him back to where he died . Police were told this. He was also saw by Four other people who gave sworn statements that they had spoken to him and he was fine .Police went round these ” witnesses and told them to keep their mouths shut as they were making things worse???? There are too many things to say here . The complaints procedure is a joke . Everything depended on the initial information that was collected at the scene . It was incompetence from the start . If someone would look . We tried for a public enquiry but the Crown office was given as all other bodies incorrect info from Police and it was wrapped up like fish supper . Let me finish with this I hand on my heart have met some Diamond in the force who are honest and have amazing Integrity . They are very few . It only takes one misplaced piece of info , a missing link in the chain . and it’s all wasted. Inside the machine the workers know this . My God , what a day it will be when Police are what they are supposed to be and not protected criminals
