The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press. More…

I know in a number of inquiries, probably more significantly outside of Surrey Police, but it has caused tension around the desire of the service and police force to communicate more information and give more updates to the public -- publicly than the IPCC. From my personal experience, and especially more recently in dealings with the IPCC, there are clear guidance on who has primacy and the clearance of lines. I think I have seen a much more pragmatic and sensible approach taken by the IPCC in relation to some of the incidents that I've been dealing with recently, where we can come to an agreement, and I certainly wouldn't be advocating, from a Surrey Police perspective, a change in the way we do business -- the way we actually deal with this at present.
