Bad Cops?

As part of his on-going campaign to try and hold the "boys in blue" better to account, a pat on the back to the Dundee Courier.

"More than 550 complaints—including allegations of neglect of duty, assault and harassment—have been made against Tayside Police staff in the last 18 months."

Only a handful resulted in further action against the officers involved and the vast majority of the complaints will have been malicious, but it still raises questions about police conduct and how they deal with the public, if the the public feel obliged to make so many complaints in the first place.
