The complaints in this case arose from the police investigation into the applicant's allegation that a social worker had committed a criminal breach of the Data Protection Act.

Three complaints were reviewed, namely that:

1) a police officer did not pass all relevant information to the Procurator Fiscal;

2) a police officer did not keep the applicant updated on the progress of the investigation; and

3) Police Scotland lost evidence provided by the applicant.

The review found that one of the complaints was dealt with to a reasonable standard while the other two were not. Two recommendations were made in this connection.
