The complaints in this case arose from the police action taken in relation to an incident the applicant reported.

Three complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. that the officer who attended the reported incident on 9 July 2016 failed to take the matter seriously and investigate the circumstances as a crime as the applicant reported it;

2. that one of the officers made a sarcastic and uncivil comment towards the applicant with body posture to match; and

3. that officers demonstrated a lack of awareness of the rights of citizens/members of the public to take photographs.

Of the three complaints considered, it was found that none were dealt with to a reasonable standard. Three recommendations were made.
