Please attribute to Inspector Matt Srhoj, Acting District Commander, Counties Manukau:
Police acknowledge the findings of an Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) review into the use of force following an incident in Counties Manukau last year.
A criminal investigation was conducted into the matter and as a result no charges were laid.
However, Police note the employment investigation into this matter remains ongoing at present. As such, Police are not in a position to comment further while this process is being carried out.
