The Police Professional Conduct Body of the police have now two separate cases against an officer who is reported as an Acting Inspector. Yesterday details of information was given as a misdirection to stop the police from being required to offer an investigation the premiss of this was under PB92033 of the PNLD database. the excuse given was that "All offences under the Protection of
Badgers Act 1992 are summary only and subject to a 6 month prosecution
time limit, from what I can tell all incidents took place more than 6
months ago so even if there
were an offence made out we would not proceed. " .
Simply put this is an untrue statement as the 6 month time-limit starts when the matter is placed before the CPS which has not occurred. Clearly this is very alarming and no contact has been provided by the Wildlife Office Tom Carter who seems to be very non communicative. New questions are being asked of Hastings Police in these matters of alleged Fraud and Alleged Wildlife crime.
