Statement from former IOPC Director General Michael Lockwood
Michael Lockwood said:
“It is with great sadness that I have decided to resign as Director General of the IOPC for personal and domestic reasons, and this will be effective from today.
“It has been an enormous privilege to serve as the first Director General of the IOPC and to have led the organisation for the past five years. I am proud of the progress we have made and I am grateful to all our staff, the Unitary Board and external stakeholders for all their support.
“The Unitary Board will now work with the Home Office to put in place new leadership arrangements as quickly as possible.”
