POLICE chiefs have revealed that an internal investigation launched after a policeman was accused of assault at a golf club is still ‘ongoing’.
Staffordshire Police told the Mail that the matter was still being investigated and an outcome had not yet been reached.
The force’s performance assessment unit had been called in to investigate claims that the officer ‘harassed and assaulted’ a man while on duty.
The incident allegedly took place at Branston Golf and Country Club, off Fairway earlier this year.
The Mail understands the PC works at Burton Police Station.
A spokesman said: “We can confirm that our performance assessment unit is still currently investigating an incident which took place at Branston Golf and Country Club following a complaint from a member of the public.”
The force said it could not confirm the name of the officer or where the officer was based.
Staffordshire Police said it would still not comment further on the nature of the complaint.
It is believed the officer has not been suspended from duty and its still working in the county.
Senior investigators have visited the complainant to take a witness statement and are now looking over the evidence before deciding the next stage of the investigation.
The matter is now in the hands of the performance assessment unit which works to promote a ‘culture of integrity, ethical behaviour and professional standards’ throughout Staffordshire Police.
