The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has found a former deputy chief constable of Northamptonshire Police has “no case to answer for gross misconduct or misconduct”.
The IPCC investigated Mr Jelley’s conduct in relation to the delay in referring a matter to the IPCC whilst in his role as Deputy Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police.
Mr Jelley left the force in March 2015 to become chief constable of Warwickshire Police.
Rachel Cerfontyne, Deputy Chair of the IPCC, said: “Following a thorough investigation, we have found Chief Constable Martin Jelley has no case to answer for gross misconduct or misconduct.”
The IPCC is unable to release further details of the investigation at this time due to a linked investigation.
