Complaints over Lincolnshire police increase by 16 per cent in a year
Lincolnshire Police chiefs have put a 16 per cent increase in complaints about the force over the past year down to the “strain of the impact and complexity” of work and a “challenge around numbers”.
A report to the Public Assurance committee on Monday said 605 complaints were received last year, with the worst month being June 2019, when 68 were made.
Deputy Chief Constable Jason Harwin said the data correlated with a decrease in user satisfaction of 7.5 per cent around the public being kept informed over investigations.
