Summary and Key Findings

032.17 The complaints in this case arose from various social media posts that the applicant reported to the police. Three complaints were reviewed, namely:

(1) that the police took the decision to class the allegation the applicant made about social media postings as non-criminal;

(2) that the applicant was provided with conflicting information as to how the allegation was being dealt with; and

(3) that the applicant received a poor service from officers at the police station who did not answer telephone calls and dealt with her at the back of the station.

Of the three complaints reviewed, it was found that one was dealt with to a reasonable standard while two were not. Two recommendations were made in this connection.
