Georgina Wolfe has represented the Chief Constable of Cheshire in an Article 2 inquest into the death of Jeanette Jackson in 2009. The jury found that Jeanette Jackson had died from hypothermia contributed to by alcohol intoxication having been left outside in -6ºC temperatures for six hours while intoxicated and inappropriately dressed. When police officers arrived at the scene Mrs Jackson collapsed and died in hospital later that morning. At the end of the five day inquest, the jury returned a verdict of accident.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission conducted a managed investigation which concluded that Cheshire Constabulary had graded the calls they received appropriately. IPCC Commissioner Naseem Malik said ‘It is clear the officers attending the scene acted professionally and did what they could to assist Ms Jackson.’
The BBC yesterday reported that ‘The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said that Cheshire Police should be cleared of any blame because they had reacted appropriately to the information given over the phone.’
Georgina’s practice encompasses all aspects of police law and she has particular experience of different police forces’ Command and Control systems.
