IPCC receives referral re South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner

The IPCC has received a referral from South Yorkshire's Police and Crime Panel relating to Shaun Wright, Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire. The referral stems from two complaints about Mr Wright's role at Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and his knowledge of child sexual exploitation allegations. We will assess whether the matter is something which requires an investigation involving the IPCC. The IPCC can investigate Police and Crime Commissioners if there is evidence that they may have committed a criminal offence, either while in office or prior to them becoming Police and Crime Commissioners.
