"Police accept IPCA findings"
Police accepts the findings of the IPCA report into complaints against Deputy Commissioner Wally Haumaha.
The IPCA has investigated three complaints and concluded that Deputy Commissioner Haumaha’s behaviour did not constitute
Police Commissioner Mike Bush said while the investigation did not find evidence of bullying, the report has raised
issues he is taking seriously.
“These are matters that I will deal with as Commissioner of Police.
“I expect high standards from all my staff, but especially members of my Executive.
“The IPCA report clarifies a number of matters that have been traversed in the media in recent months.”
An independent Inquiry completed in November found that the process followed to appoint the Deputy Commissioner was
sound and that there was no available and relevant information omitted from the process.
“It is good to now have both the IPCA report and Inquiry completed.
The independent examination of all matters raised has been an important process.”
