Giles York is the chief constable of Sussex Police taking over from a long chain of chief constables, including Paul Whitehouse, who was finally forced to resign after the Home Secretary insisted that he should go.
THE GUARDIAN - SHANA GRICE
A judge criticised police as he jailed a stalker who murdered his former girlfriend five months after officers gave her a fixed penalty notice for wasting their time with complaints about him.
SHADOW CRIME COMMISSIONER, WHISTLEBLOWER
Matt (Mathew) Taylor is a member of the public who is as concerned as some other residents in the East Sussex area that crimes being reported to the Sussex Police are not being investigated properly or at all. The murder of Shana Grice is an example that tends to support Mr Taylor's assertions, however randomly they may have been presented.
BLOWING THE WHISTLE - More protection should be given to whistleblowers by the courts and with changes to stature to ensure that dirt does not just get swept under the carpet. Imagine if it was possible to sweep away evidence of being told and being told about crimes in public, by asking a court to grant an injunction preventing disclosure. Disclosure is a right protected by Article 10, so long as the disclosure is accurate - and we would recommend - supported by documentary proofs. That way any fair minded court abiding by Section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998, could not be persuaded to part any citizen from his Convention right to blow the whistle. The danger is always that in their frustration as perfectly reasonable moan about lack of justice in Sussex, may stray into a bolstered view, rather than stick adamantly to the facts.
YORK - Is the chief constable of Sussex
Police taking over from a long chain of chief constables,
including Paul Whitehouse, who was finally
forced to resign after the Home Secretary insisted that he should go. Are
we in for any surprises after the Grice murder. Should Giles seek to stay
to milk the ratepayer for his pension, or should he resign now and let a
better man try to put Sussex police in order? The fact is that while Giles
is resident, it is unlikely that Sussex police will investigate fraud
within Wealden District Council's planning
COMMISSIONER - Is it fair to have a go at Katy for Sussex Police
failings, or is it your public duty to report inaction and blow the
Katy Bourne was elected Crime Commissioner, taking office with an oath to serve the public interest. That is an oath that many are now questioning, where she appears to be serving Sussex Police instead of policing the organisation that has come under such flack for their blatant refusal to investigate so many complaints of malfeasance in public office in a certain Councils that this serious form of fraud and property value manipulation is rampant. If you know about any consents that are being handed out to friends of councillors, or relatives of councillors or council officers, why not blow the whistle.
Don't tell the National Audit Office and don't bother with the Ombudsman or District Auditor, criminal activity like fraud is a matter for Sussex Police and that seems to be a bit of a problem with Giles York at the helm. Because, okay, we know that they will not investigate their chums at Wealden, but surely that is another crime (conspiracy) that Katy should know about. If Sussex police will not investigate Wealden, why do you suppose that is? We know what you are thinking here, could it be that some of the police officers have a deal in place with Wealden's officers to control who gets planning consents and who does not? It's an interesting theory and one that is gathering pace with the discovery of tipped entries in the Declarations of Interest book at Wealden's offices. Talk about make it up as you go along, and worse, change the record later to suit.
The next problem is that from past experience, Katy is unlikely to do anything about it, except perhaps to say that lessons will have to be learned when it is too late and you have lost your property to a neighbour, who then gets the consent that should have been yours many years previously. Give it a try anyway. You never know, Katy may decide that enough is enough.

MISFEASANCE & MALFEASANCE
When an officer of the courts omits to include evidence that he knows is relevant to a hearing, that is termed misfeasance in public office. Where an officer then tries to cover up his or her misfeasance (as did Ian Kay in the Stream Farm matter), that becomes malfeasance. The difference is that misfeasance is a civil wrong, whereas malfeasance is a criminal offence. The leading case precedent on malfeasance is: R. v Bowden 1995 Court of Appeal (98 1 WLR).
