Managed investigation into former deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire concluded

An investigation into the former deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire, Ibrahim Master, managed by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), has concluded.

The investigation followed a referral from the Lancashire Police and Crime Panel to the IPCC about Mr Masters’ conduct following an incident at a house in Blackburn in August 2014. It was carried out by Lancashire Constabulary under the direction and control of the IPCC, and investigated allegations of harassment and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

An investigation report was referred to the Crown Prosecution Service. The CPS has since decided there is insufficient evidence to bring any criminal proceedings.

The investigation report will be sent to the Lancashire Police and Crime Panel.

Notes to editors:

The IPCC can investigate Police and Crime Commissioners or their deputies 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.
