Investigation ongoing after two Bradford police officers suspended from the Force

West Yorkshire Police have not confirmed the names of the police officers involved as the investigation is still ongoing.

Last month an investigation was launched last month following an allegation of misconduct by Bradford Police.

Two officers have been suspended from duty while the matter is investigated. The Force would not confirm names when asked by Asian Standard, nor give any details on when the incident occurred or what type of misconduct happened.

 

Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime Alison Lowe knows about the incident but cannot comment on it as the investigation is still ongoing.

This comes after the public body responsible for overseeing the system for handling complaints made against police forces in England and Wales, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), found that West Yorkshire had the second most allegations made against it for discriminatory behaviour across England and Wales between April 2020 and April 2021.

During this time there were 341 allegations against WYP.

West Yorkshire’s Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Alison Lowe said: “The Chief Constable has made me aware of recent events, however, I cannot comment further while investigations are ongoing.”

A representative for West Yorkshire Police, said: “West Yorkshire Police’s Professional Standards Directorate are investigating the alleged misconduct of officers in Bradford District.

“Two officers have been suspended from duty pending the outcome of that investigation.”
