THE public has made corruption allegations against more than 60 police officers in the county.
A report produced by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) showed during the last three years that 65 cops in Northamptonshire came under scrutiny.
But in a big boost the IPCC report acknowledges that “corruption is not widespread” across the country.
All 65 cases raised were compiled by the Force which then handed them over to the IPCC with only seven of them deemed serious.
Four were directly dealt with by the IPCC and three were handed back to the police who carried out an internal investigation.
Detective Superintendent Pete Windridge, from the Northamptonshire
Police’s Professional Standards Department, said: “Northamptonshire Police takes perceived corruption very seriously.
“The trust and confidence of our communities is paramount and this is a key factor in that objective.
