The IPCC’s investigation into the death of Leon Briggs is continuing and five police officers and a police detention officer remain under criminal investigation.
This month, four of those officers, a police constable and three sergeants, were served with additional gross misconduct notices. The notices relate to the matter of conferring at the police post incident procedure on 4 November 2013, contrary to the College of Policing’s Approved Professional Practice.
Further criminal interviews with five police officers and a police detention officer took place in November 2014.
A second detention officer has been told they are no longer under criminal or misconduct investigation but has been interviewed again by IPCC investigators as a significant witness to the investigation.
Mr Briggs’ family and Bedfordshire Police have been updated with the latest developments.
