West Midlands Police officer charged with ABH

A serving West Midlands Police officer was yesterday charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm following an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

We independently investigated a complaint, which was referred to us by the force, linked to an incident in the Handsworth area of Birmingham on 27 February 2020, in which a Taser was used.

After careful consideration of the evidence, we referred the case to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has authorised the ABH charge against PC Declan Jones, 30.

PC Jones is due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on 5 October.
