This evening the DPP will set out the results of discussions undertaken with leading police officers, including Chief Constable David Whatton from the Association of Chief Police Officers' (ACPO). Mr Whatton said:
By working shoulder to shoulder with the Crown Prosecution Service and the College of Policing, ACPO is keen to ensure that we continue to build on progress in the area of sex offence investigation.
We have proposed a package of measures, including a rationalisation of guidance, training and consideration of a review panel mechanism to ensure we have truly learned from the lessons of the past.
