KEN JONES - CHIEF CONSTABLE
Ken Jones took over the position of chief constable after Paul Whitehouse left disgraced by his handling of complaints as to procedural irregularity ending in the shooting and death of a civilian.
Most recently the new Chief Constable has been giving evidence to the Morris Inquiry. We understand Mr Jones has received a number of complaints from the public concerning breaches of the Human Rights Act occasioned by the Wealden District Council working hand in hand with officers of Wealden D C. This is a new issue for the Police to come to terms with in addition to any complaint of harassment, deception or misuse of public funds.
It appears the Sussex Police may have been assisting Wealden's enforcement officers to evade their duty to ensure a fair hearing, they being required by law to substantiate the reasons for enforcement visits. It appears the Sussex Police may not have been aware of the requirements of Wealden's enforcement officers to provide detailed evidence as to their authorisation.
Most Police forces are part funded by their local authorities. Because of this they should take special care not be seen to be acting to the detriment of the public. Should they do so they leave themselves open to criticism such as masonic ties, or other cosy relationships, normally only revealed by whistleblowers.
However, the Police must act in accordance with the Police Act and Code of Conduct . It is their duty to protect the public and the peace. Not to do so constitutes a crime in itself as in R v Dytham and R v Bowden.
Ken Jones failed to mount any kind of investigation as to the mounting allegations of fraud against Wealden District Council, including the case of Nelson Kruschandl, the well known anti-corruption activist.
KEN JONES WIKIPEDIA
Sir Kenneth Lloyd "Ken" Jones QPM is a British former police officer. He was a Deputy Commissioner of Victoria Police in Australia, former President of Association of Chief Police Officers for England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom and Senior Investigator of Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) of Hong Kong. Sir Ken Jones is a former President of Association of Chief Police Officers and presently defence & security advisor at the British Embassy in Washington DC. He was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in 2000 and was knighted for services to policing in 2009.
During the time Sir Ken Jones served
Victoria Police Force he became the subject of death threats which came to public light in December 2010. This signalled the start of the complicated relationship at the top of Victoria Police concerning the integrity of the presentation of crime statistics to the public between Jones and Overland. Concerns have been raised about Overland's actions as there is an ongoing investigation into allegations of Overland's own conduct with the former Brumby government, in particular the release of incomplete favorable crime statistics prior to the 2010 election.
"Mr Kellam’s review concluded that the evidence available to OPI and set out in OPI’s final investigation report to the Ombudsman did not support an allegation that Sir Ken Jones QPM had engaged in serious misconduct by leaking or facilitating leaking to the media of confidential police information".
This final report cleared Jones of any wrongdoing during his time at Victoria Police Force.
