POLICE chiefs have revealed that two separate investigations into allegations of professional misconduct are still ‘ongoing’.

Staffordshire Police confirmed to the Mail investigations were still continuing with regard to two matters concerning officers based at Burton Police Station.

Last year, on officer was suspended and three others taken off front-line duties following allegations of professional misconduct in October.

A major investigation was launched into the conduct of four of its officers, with the nature of the complaint resulting in the officers being pulled from active duty being described as of a ‘confidential nature’.

A spokesman for the force told the Mail: “All allegations of crime or misconduct by Staffordshire Police officers and staff are treated very seriously and are thoroughly investigated.”

The force also confirmed was still pursuing an internal investigation launched last summer after a policeman was accused of assault at a golf club.

The incident allegedly took place at Branston Golf and Country Club, off Fairway.

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 Mail understands the PC works at Burton Police Station.

The force said it could not confirm the names of any the officers involved.
