The complaints in this case arose from the applicant's detention and arrest in connection with an alleged offence.

Three complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. That the applicant was arrested despite contradictory witness statements;

2. That the applicant requested that an officer speak with his son but this request was refused; and

3. That an officer did nothing when the applicant told her he had been assaulted and abused and said it was not her job.

The review found that one of the complaints was dealt with to a reasonable standard and two were not. One recommendation has been made.
