Custody Sergeant Sigley authorised illegal strip search which was carried out by PS Stephen Eckersley resulting in inappropriate sexual contact. This was reported as a formal complaint to Lancashire Police but Inspector Charlie Cox declared NFA (no further action) without ANY investigation against the officers involved. This has been reported and IPCC will be investigating.
PS Eckersley asked Sergeant Sigley “should we suit him”, Custody Sergeant Sigley replied in a light hearted tone “yeahhhhh”.
Why would an Inspector (Inspector Charlie cox) on Lancashire Police not investigate a crime reported against a Police officer under his control?
