The complaints in this case arose from the police response to a dispute involving the applicant and his neighbours.

Three complaints were reviewed, namely:

1) that despite the police having been provided with various forms of evidence insufficient enquiry was conducted into threats made against the applicant by his former neighbours;

2) that officers failed to attend an appointment with the applicant on 14 September 2016; and

3) that when the applicant called 101 on 13 September 2016 to lodge a complaint the police failed to record this complaint.

The review found that none of the complaints were dealt with to a reasonable standard. Two recommendations were made and an additional matter highlighted.
