Superintendent Steve Quinn is tasked with trying to stop such behaviour in his role as head of safeguarding for Warwickshire Police – as well as being a serious crime detective.

But he is now being investigated by the force’s professional standards team following the allegations.

Sources say the investigating team are looking at emails and messages between Quinn and female colleagues.

Detective Supt Quinn is one of the force’s most senior officers and reports to Assistant Chief Constable Richard Moore.

During his career at Warwickshire Police he oversaw the high profile murder investigation of a policeman mown down by a car while on duty.

He was also present at an awards ceremony in 2017 which recognised junior officers, civilian staff and the public who ‘go the extra mile’.


Assistant Chief Constable for Warwickshire Police, Alex Franklin-Smith, said: “As a result of information received by the force, relating to the conduct of a Warwickshire police officer towards other colleagues, an investigation has commenced by the force’s Professional Standards Department.

“This has been referred to the Independent Office of Police Conduct and is currently a supervised investigation.

“The force absolutely supports an open and transparent process and, if proven, does not tolerate any conduct or behaviour which fails to meet our high standards.
