The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has confirmed that the potential conduct matters involving the currently suspended Temporary Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police, Neil Rhodes have been referred back to the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire for Local Investigation.
– Alan Hardwick, Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner
I welcome the determination made by the IPCC. The decision made by the IPCC not to carry out their own investigation is understandable and in line with previous determinations they have made on Chief Officer conduct matters. I will be conducting my own independent and rigorous local investigation into the potential conduct matters that were raised.
