The new Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales Alun Edward Michael

The new Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales Alun Edward Michael born 22 August 1943
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alun_Michael

The question is will Alun Michael act if you have a genuine complaint? Unlike it would seem the South Wales Police Authority.

South Wales Police have had extremely bad publicity over the years
What can Alun Michael do to return the publics confidence in the South Wales force?

I don’t think there is a lot of respect out there for the Police people has lost confidence in the Police

Do we really need another dried up old stool on top of the dung heap?

You dont need me to tell you have corrupt SWPF is, but I can question if Alum Michael has the strength, and quality of character to stamp it out?

Personally I doubt it.

another good job for a ggod old boy, what a waste of money,
he's in now try asking for help, he will be like our M P anything to get a photo in the paper and thats it,

i tried to get in touch with mr michael before the election no replys. if he cant be bothered before he got in what chance now. none. with nearly £100,000 per year he will not want to answer the common people he will be in meetings, diners,guest speeking,functions, etc.another labour crony.
the police were pathetic before now they only have him to answer to and he havent got a clue, he'll go well in R C T
council answerable to no one,put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Jobs for the boys and the golden trough awaits.

When the president of wales role becomes available no doubt they will roll out Chief sponger himself and his family of human locust Lord Kinnock of Ginger.

The outgoing chairman of South Wales Police Authority delivered a parting dig at Westminster as Alun Michael was sworn in as the region’s first Police Crime Commissioner.

I think the now defunct chair of the South Wales Police Authority has a short memory with so many people have suffered wrongful convictions.
I would be ashamed to say I was part of that authority in overall control of South Wales Police especially when investigations are still proceeding into some police officers.

Have the South Wales Police Authority been effective in controlling South Wales Police? Don’t forget the last chair of the authority allegedly had 5 Jobs little wonder it took nearly 10 years and cost the taxpayer about £30m to bring eight former South Wales police officers to court on charges of perverting the course of justice and fabricating evidence.

Cynon Valley Labour MP Ann Clwyd said: “There is considerable shock at the conduct of this case, in South Wales and elsewhere. In the past, there have been a particularly high number of miscarriages of justice under the South Wales Police force.

Referring to its newly published 1995-2012 Legacy Report, which shows that crime figures in South Wales are at their lowest for 30 years, John Littlechild said government claims that police authorities were “ineffective and invisible” could not be proved based on his force.

I note that Anne Clywd has been very silent of South Wales Police over the years.

I also note that RCTBC cabinet member Cllr Middle

Owns a full time business and serves as a Major in the TA.

I WONDER WHERE HE FINDS THE TIME TO SIT IN THE CABINET AND DECIDE AND FORMULATE POLICY, WHICH OF COURSE TAKES MUCH TIME AND CONSIDERATION.

CERTAINTY HE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE VERY KNOWABLE ABOUT CRUCIAL ISSUES OF ADMINISTRATIVE LAW WHEN QUESTIONED, AND THEN WENT OFF TO PROMPTLY TAKE THE HUFF WHEN CORRECTED.

WE NEED DEDICATION AND QUALITY, NOT OPPORTUNISTS AND QUANTITY.

Maybe this is the reason that inspired Local Government minister Brandon Lewis to state that councils had "forgotten that their job is to serve the public”

Statement from IPCC regarding its two Lynette White investigations

The IPCC has completed its independent investigation into the alleged destruction of documents by South Wales Police in the trial of eight former police officers and two civilians (R v Mouncher and others) which was discontinued on 1 December 2011.

South Wales Police voluntarily referred the matter to the IPCC and an independent investigation started on 2 December. On 17 January 2012, the documents in question were found.

HMCPSI is conducting an extensive review into wider aspects of the prosecution led by Michael Fuller, HM Chief Inspector. The IPCC has shared its investigation findings and evidence with the HMCPSI under a mutual agreement.

As these two independent investigations relate to the same trial the IPCC and the Crown Prosecution Service have agreed to publish the results of both investigations at the same time, once the HMCPSI investigation has been completed. Co-ordinating publication will ensure that a comprehensive account of both investigations is provided at the same time. The publication date will be confirmed but is anticipated to be in the first half of 2013.

The R v Mouncher and others trial arose from an investigation by South Wales Police of allegations concerning the conduct of the original inquiry into the murder of Lynette White in Cardiff in 1988. This investigation, which was supervised from August 2004 by the IPCC under the provisions of the Police Act, is also now complete. South Wales Police will be submitting its final report on the investigation to the IPCC Commissioner for Wales Tom Davies. This report will be published on the IPCC website in due course.

South Wales Police statement on Lynette White discontinuance of proceedings, one year on

On 1st December 2011, the Chief Constable of South Wales Police and Director of Public Prosecutions committed to thorough and independent reviews into the discontinuance of proceedings against eight former police officers involved in the original investigation into the murder of Lynette White in 1988. In the case of the police, the Chief Constable referred these matters and related complaints to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Since then, South Wales Police has remained fully committed to supporting and engaging with the work of the IPCC and Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate.

Whilst the findings of these enquiries have not yet been published, the professionalism of our investigations remains a priority and is continuously reviewed.
