Deputy Carolyn Labey has called for the changes after ‘running into a wall of silence’ from senior officers who have refused to share the findings of an inquiry into complaints she made against the force.
The Deputy wrote a letter of complaint making 60 separate points after a States police team looking for evidence to support allegations against Senator Stuart Syvret entered their home in April. It was alleged that the Senator had breached data protection law by publishing certain material on his internet blog.
The Grouville Deputy’s complaints were investigated by the Warwickshire Constabulary, who have now concluded their inquiries and have sent a report to the States police. However, she has been told that she cannot have a copy until mid-November and that, even then, she will get only a summary.
‘Regardless of Stuart and anything like that, what they did to me and my children was unlawful and breached my human rights,’ said Deputy Labey. ‘They literally turned my house over when I was on holiday with my children.’
The States police said they were unable to comment.
