Letter to Supt. LM Hopkins, Qld. Police
Dear Supt. Hopkins,
Thank you for your letter of 28th Sept just received.
You amaze me.
The Sergeant investigating the ID card at Dutton Pk told me that the card had been lost.
You now tell me that the owner of the card has been identified.
I understand that police are required to record, catalogue and safely store material evidence that comes into their possession. It seems that this was not done with respect to the ID card.
Please advise what has been done to discipline the officer who failed to do that and what has been done to reinstate respect for correct procedures among those police under your supervision.
An unsatisfactory reply to the above questions will of course lead me to take this matter further.
(Dr) JOHN RAY (M.A.; Ph.D.)
