Recommendation - Hampshire Constabulary, September 2023

Published 11 Sep 2023

This recommendation follows an IOPC review of a death or serious injury review. The review related to an individual who, having been invited to attend a voluntary interview in relation to an allegation of an historic sexual offence, took their own life prior to the interview taking place. 

It is possible that a more formal, focused and structured risk assessment process carried out at this time may have alerted officers to an increased risk of self-harm or suicide, which they could have acted upon, with relevant advice or sign-posting.
