Cambridgeshire: IPCC Investigate Police
The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating the way Cambridgeshire Police handled calls from a man who was later found dead at home.
74 year old James Marriott was found at his home on Horsegate Lane, Whittlesey, just after 6pm on the 9th February 2013.
A post-mortem examination concluded that he died from a heart attack.
According to the IPCC, Mr Marriott had made three calls to the Cambridgeshire Police Service Centre between 12:09pm and 12:29pm on that day.
IPCC Commissioner Sarah Green said:"Our investigation is examining the decision-making and actions taken by police staff who took the calls from James Marriott on 9 February.
We are investigating the rationale for these and whether they were sufficient and appropriate in the circumstances.
IPCC investigators have contacted Mr Marriott’s family to explain our role and outline our investigation to them."
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said it would be 'inappropriate' to comment while the investigation is ongoing.
