Attributable to Superintendent Paul Basham, Southern District Commander:
Police acknowledge the Independent Police Conduct Authority’s conclusion that a claim of officers threatening and intimidating a man in Dunedin in May 2019 was unfounded.
The officers’ conduct aligned well with Police values – in particular, professionalism and integrity – and this was identified in the independent review.
Police deal with difficult matters every day, and in this case the officers achieved a good result following a thorough investigation.
