Investigation into Kent PCC

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is investigating whether the Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent was legally insured to drive when she was involved in a road traffic accident last month.

Details of the accident in Princes Road, Dartford, on 16 September, were referred to the IPCC by the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent on 26 September.

Following an assessment it has been decided that an independent IPCC investigation is necessary to determine whether Ann Barnes may have committed a criminal offence.

The investigation will be overseen by IPCC Commissioner Cindy Butts.
