IPCC inquiry

Operation Rutland - the fraud inquiry led by Surrey Police - is being independently investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). The inquiry relates to the alleged transfer of £1 million from the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) Constables' Central Committee.

"The PFEW reported the matter to Surrey Police on Wednesday 16 March and will continue to offer the investigation our utmost cooperation and hope that there are no avoidable delays for all those concerned as a result of this news," says a spokesman for the national Police Federation.

"The day-to-day running of the PFEW is not affected and the PFEW remains committed to representing its 122,000 members.

"We are a reforming organisation and we continue to fundamentally change the way we work as part of our own internal review and we are committed to ensuring the highest level of integrity in dealing with the funds entrusted to us by our members."
