"Watchdog woefully underequipped: IPCC leaves public frustrated and without faith in the police: The Home Affairs Committee will publish its Report on The Independent Police Complaints Commission on Friday 1 February 2013 at 00.01 (Eleventh Report, Session 2012-13, HC 494). The Committee finds that: the Commission is overloaded with appeal cases; serious cases involving police corruption or misconduct are left underinvestigated, while the Commission devotes resources to less serious complaints; and public trust continues to be undermined by the IPCC’s dependence on former officers and the investigative resources of police forces."
