The complaints in this case arose from police officers having attended at the applicants home in relation to an on-going neighbour dispute.

Four complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. that Constable A set out to humiliate and intimidate the applicant and did not allow her to explain her position;

2. that Constable A was under the influence of illegal drugs when he entered the applicants home;

3. that Constable B threatened the applicant with arrest unnecessarily; and

4. that Constable A and Constable B refused to leave the applicants home when asked to do so.

Of the four complaints considered, it was found that two were handled to a reasonable standard while two were not. Two recommendations have been made in this connection.
