It has just been given out on the morning news that a Police Investigation into the Police federation of England and Wales following information being received about possible fraud involving a bank account held on behalf of Constables. The Vice Chairman of the Federation, who is a Constable with the Metropolitan Police has resigned but no reason has been given. Investigations are continuing.

Has Will Riches resigned from the police or just stepped down from vice chair?…………….. News just says he has resigned, it implies that he has committed fraud or is there a bit of aggro between White & Riches!

 

'As the news emerged, the federation - which represents most police officers - separately confirmed that its vice-chairman, Will Riches, had resigned'.

4 persons have been arrested. One a retired Officer and three serving officers including Will Riches. It seems it has something to do with transfer of 1M pounds to an unauthorised charity account.

The alleged fraud concerns a £1million 'start-up' payment into the account of the Peelers Charitable Foundation, which was set up last July to support officers in need.

Riches – renowned for his love of expensive restaurants and fine wine – is one of its four directors.

 

It was previously known as the Constables' Charitable Foundation. Barker, who appears to have retired from Greater Manchester Police, was also a director.

One insider said Mr White began asking questions about the money this week. They said: 'A lot of people are still scratching their heads as to exactly what has gone on.

'The creation of the Peelers Charitable Foundation was well-documented and was signed off after many meetings, all of which were minuted. Everyone agreed it was a well-intentioned and good idea and something that the federation should be doing.

 

………this seems a bit far fetched, £1m fraud………..looks like Mr White is mucking the waters to keep his job….only time will tell. Hopefully Mr Riches will rise again.
