The investigation was commenced by the Anti-Corruption Unit of Merseyside Police. At trial, the Crown asserted that the Defendant had accessed the police computer system for his own purposes rather than for policing purposes. The Crown identified a total of 896 audit records of the Defendant’s alleged unauthorized use of the system. David was instructed by Alan Greenidge of Slater & Gordon Lawyers.
