Police chief in 'transparency' pledge

The Association of Chief Police Officers is "actively considering" proposals to create more transparency in the way forces deal with complaints against officers from the public.

Mike Cunningham, the Chief Constable of Staffordshire and the Acpo lead on professional standards, told Today presenter John Humphrys that he would put his "personal recommendation" on proposals made following a review by the organisation Transparency International.

Lawyer Fiona Murphy, who specialises in public complaints against the police, told the programme that "only one in more than 2000 complaints against the police result in an officer being required to resign."
