This was the Freedom of Information (FoI) request to the Association of Chiel Police Officers (ACPO), made by Paul Randle-Jolliffe.
Paul is asking about crimes committed in public or private family law matters.
Victims of other white collar crimes have established long ago that there is a Memorandum of Understanding between ACPO and the Law Society which would, of course, cover family law, too.
Whilst the FoI request says that it’s waiting for an ‘internal review’, it will be interesting to read the outcome!
John Hemming MP offered to look into 2 – 3 well evidenced cases!
Meanwhile, you can put your own observation / case as “annotation”. But don’t go into rants, please.
