The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is required by law to collate and publish a report presenting statistics on complaints recorded by police forces in England and Wales. Along with other statistical data, the reports contain information on complaints made and upheld. The reports are prepared by the IPCC and laid before Parliament on an annual basis. Reports from 2004-05 can be found on the IPCC website at the following link:
The Home Office has no plans to issue a statement.
