Presumably 'Free and' Freer has retired? He used to be the go-to solicitor for criminals in Middlesbrough.
Sean Price's (The CC who was fired) wife - DCI Heather Eastwood - has resigned from Cleveland plod after N. York Police arrested her on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.

I had relatives on the force back in the days when Mickey Finn was Head of the Regional Crime Squad. Hard bastards but good coppers.

Remember the conviction of Pc Hills for breaking a handcuffed prisoner neck ? There was first a complaint via John Allen about domestic assault on his partner. This was refused crime complaint by Thanet senior officers. So his partner's father asked them to turn a blind eye and he would punch the living daylights out of Hills.
Oh no if you do that you will be arrested.
So there was a crime complaint of assault and it was refused. With that complaint from his partner and her father was a complaint of substance abuse. Ignored. It was then that Hills was obliged to return to work from sick leave and then he broke the prisoner neck.
The next complaint in that case, via John, was that on duty officers were intimidating Hills partner into not coming forward with evidence in the Hills case. IE Not dobbing in the Thanet senior officers. Again Kent Chief constable refused crime complaint and conduct complaint status. And again it was reported to Home Secretary. But also to presiding Judge Giles Rooke sitting on the Hills case.
The Judges clerk forwarded the complaint to Chief constable for reply direct to complainants. Chiefie elected the silence of the common criminal.
Next episode was the Pc Bluestone family murder. And the Chief constable appointed the Thanet Police commander to investigate why assault complaints against Bluestone had not been properly recorded when he was a Thanet Pc.
Reports by complainants were sent direct to the HM Coroner in the Bluestone family case informing him of the Pc Hills history and that the senior officer who had refused crime complaints against Hills was the same officer appointed to investigate why Bluestone had escaped crime complaints in the same command. And HM Coroner was informed if that senior officer gave evidence at inquest then the inquest would be subjected to appeal for irregulaity of proceedings (S 13 Coroners Act 198
At some point we became aware that Thanet police might be seeking a warrant against the father of Pc Hills partner. Remember this was after a number of malicious warrant raids had been reported to Home Secretary. So a report was sent to Thanet Magistrates that it was anticipated that an application for warrant would be made and setting out the reasons Justices should be aware it would be a malicious application.
One allegedly malicious warrant raid was on Bill True neighbour to 6th Thanet Gun range. 16 officers searched his house but what they were taking was the ammo evidence he had recovered from his own land re 6th Thanet gun range. They did not get all that evidence and some bags were handed into police via Thanet District Council so as to act as a record.
You may recall that Supt George Rogers of Thanet was suddenly exchange posted with Australia. And in his absence Thanet Police was subjected to HMI inspection ? And Supt Rogers never regained command of Thanet ?
And you may recall the instant departure without notice of Kent Chief constable in 2003 ? At the time Gen De Chasterlain was in touch with NI Office about his Good Friday Agreement terms of reference with a view to investigating Kent Police history of firearms cert issues and activity at 6th Thanet Gun range and Stone Lodge Range Dartford.
If Kent Police have cleaned their act up it is because people like John Allen and myself spent a lot of time kicking their arses.

I'm pleased about the kids/seatbelts thing. The number you see here either sitting in the front seat or standing in the back between the driver's and passenger's seat is frightening.

The expression, "Bent as a nine bob note", springs very readily to mind. I feel sorry for the decent coppers in Cleveland. For the bent ones - nothing but utter loathing, a disgrace to the uniform.In my 50's and thus a grumpy old man. Just so long as you realise that I'm right and you're wrong, we'll get along just fine, OK?
