Mr Smith thinks you really can't get much more strindent criticism of police operational practice than in this case.

"LOTHIAN and Borders Police has been accused of "systemic failure", by the Police Complains Commissioner for Scotland, for failing to pass on information to prosecutors. Tom Halpin, deputy chief constable of Lothian and Borders Police and until recently the acting chief constable, is reported to be strongly criticised by the watchdog for reportedly endorsing the practice of his officers "filtering out" information from crime reports."

What else is going on out there that we don't know about yet? He's a bad cop and he was an Acting Chief Constable.
