Letter: Police racism

Sir: In reporting that a new national squad may target corrupt police officers, you alleged (19 October) that the Police Complaints Authority "has been criticised for lacking teeth".

Yet in the same issue you recount that Operation Gunter has led to the sacking of three West Midlands police officers for corruption. Who devoted considerable resources in supervising that investigation? The PCA. Who took the final decision to press the 28 disciplinary charges against the officers? The PCA.

Thirdly, who has been pressing for substantive changes to the way in which officers gain enhanced medical retirement ahead of disciplinary charges? The PCA.
