Police accused of misconduct escaping investigation

A BBC investigation has found that hundreds of police officers accused of misconduct have been able to leave the service rather than face disciplinary investigation.

A Freedom of Information request by Panorama found that between 2008 and last year, almost 500 officers in the UK who had been accused of misconduct were allowed to leave their jobs.
