The applicant's complaints relate to the police handling of an ongoing dispute between the applicant and his neighbours. Four complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. that officers came to the applicant's home at midnight and spoke with his wife rather than him;

2. that a sergeant promised to update the applicant on the possibility of mediation but did not so, despite the applicant trying to contact him on a number of occasions;

3. that officers attended at the applicant's home when neither he nor his wife were there and spoke outside to his son, who has autism; and

4. that an officer left a telephone message regarding the applicant being reported to the Procurator Fiscal when this should have been done face-to-face.

The review found that three complaints were handled to a reasonable standard whilst one was not. One recommendation was made.
