Warwickshire Police have apologised for failing to name a retired police officer charged with theft. They received criticism following the decision on Wednesday.
In their latest statement on the issue, the force say they never intended to "mislead the public."
This issue was not about secrecy or protecting an ex police officer. This change was part of aligning policies and practices with West Mercia Police.
54 year old Paul Andrew Greaves, of Belvoir Lodge, Carlton, Nottinghamshire and formerly of the Stratford has been charged with the theft of £113,000 from the former police headquarters at Leek Wooton.
He will appear in court in Leamington on 22nd May.
