Chief Constable Investigation

Andrew Timpson, Warwickshire ConstabularyAs a result of allegations made by staff of the Warwickshire Constabulary in relation to the actions of the Chief Constable of the force, Mr Andrew Timpson, the Warwickshire Police Authority has called for an investigation.

They have asked Norman Bettison, the Chief Constable of Merseyside Police, to undertake the investigation and have referred the matter to the Police Complaints Authority. The PCA has agreed to supervise the investigation and that role will be undertaken by the Deputy Chair of the PCA, Mrs Molly Meacher.

The Chief Constable of Warwickshire, Mr Timpson, has taken sick leave from this afternoon (13 September), and the Police Authority have been informed. The Deputy Chief Constable (Mr M J Brewer) will carry out the duties of the Chief Constable during his absence.

No further comment will be made until the investigating officer has reported further to the Warwickshire Police Authority.
