IPCC Scrutiny of West Yorkshire Police and Six Other Forces Involvement in Savile Enquiry (20 Feb 2013)
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has directed West Yorkshire Police to record and refer the conduct of a former police inspector and has asked West Yorkshire Police, along with six other forces, to review all information held in relation to Jimmy Savile to ascertain the need for further involvement of the IPCC.
Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire, Mark Burns-Williamson welcomed the IPCC involvement and the independent scrutiny it will provide for West Yorkshire Police and the six other forces involved.
"It is vitally important that the people of West Yorkshire and elsewhere understand what happened and the role that the police played during the many years that Savile lived in West Yorkshire and committed such shocking crimes here and throughout the UK.
"I have been in close consultation with Her Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary (HMIC) to consider the best way of ensuring transparent scrutiny of the relevant facts. I have agreed with HMIC that it would be in the best interests of the public for this scrutiny to be overseen by the IPCC and the decision of the IPCC to take conduct of this matter under its control is the right one.
"I will continue to work closely with the IPCC and West Yorkshire Police to make sure that we can be certain of understanding the facts of what happened here and make sure that the public and the police have full confidence going forward."
