14 March 2011
Alan Greenidge, a Litigation Executive in the Manchester Criminal & Misconduct department
successfully defended a Custody Sergeant at the magistrates court in respect of an Assault allegation on a prisoner. CCTV footage taken from a custody suite showed our client stretching across the custody desk to slap a detained prisoner who was handcuffed with two police officers either side of him to the face twice. A Police Safety trainer was called to give evidence on behalf of the defence who stated that our client had used a standard defensive strike due to the threat he perceived from the detained prisoner who had targeted him for verbal abuse upon entering the custody suite.
