PCC cleared of wrongdoing

Ben Weisz

Political reporter, BBC Sussex

Sussex's Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, has been cleared of wrongdoing following a lengthy investigation into a Facebook post made during the campaign for the 2016 election. 

In that post, she said she'd never claimed expenses. In fact, she'd actually claimed £385, once, for a rail journey in 2012. 

The complaint was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commissioner, who then referred it to the Crown Prosecution Service to see if a criminal offence had been committed. 

Police and Crime Commissioners are allowed to claim travel expenses - some claim thousands of pounds worth each year. The complaint was about whether she'd knowingly misled voters.

In the end, the CPS determined there was no case to answer. The report will be published soon - but Katy Bourne said she was pleased by the news. 

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne
BBC

I was always confident that the facts would speak for themselves and I am pleased the Crown Prosecution Service has determined there is no case to answer.

For almost five years I have been subjected to a relentless campaign of harassment, stalking and malicious allegations from a particular individual.

Unfortunately I am unable to say anything further until police investigations have been concluded.”

Police commissioner in the hotseat: what did we learn?

Ben Weisz

Political reporter, BBC Sussex

Sussex's Tory Police and Crime Commissioner took your questions for an hour this morning on BBC Sussex and Surrey. What did we learn? 

Katy Bourne told us she's actively lobbying Government to give more money to police forces with older populations. Sussex, with an elderly population susceptible to scams, could stand to gain handsomely from such a change. 

Secondly, she insisted that West Sussex's fire service would still work with council agencies on issues like dementia and domestic abuse - even if she takes over its governance. She won't announce her plans for its future until the end of the year - but council leaders had already expressed concern that taking away their fire service would undermine that work. 

Several callers had personal experience of crime, and felt the police hadn't responded well. Some suggested that with fewer officers, fighting crime was getting harder. 

Katy Bourne accepted that cuts had had an impact on staffing levels, but wouldn't accept poor service was an inevitable result of that. She offered to chase cases up personally.
