The complaints in this case arose from the applicant being issued a Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty Notice for causing an "unnecessary obstruction".

Four complaints were considered, namely:

1. that an officer lost his temper and failed to deal with a situation appropriately;

2. that the officers refused to accept an explanation for the offence from the applicant;

3. that the officers failed to accurately record the situation; and

4. that the officers misrepresented the facts of the case to the Court.

The review found that three complaints were handled to a reasonable standard while the remaining complaint was not. A single recommendation was made in this connection. A learning point was also issued.
