The Investigation

What happens once the investigation has been launched?

The Superintendent must keep you informed of the progress of the investigation; this may include periodical phone calls, meetings or written correspondence.

Regardless of the involvement of external agencies (Family & Community Services and/or the police) the Superintendent will ensure investigations are concluded in a timely manner. Internal investigations should normally be concluded within three months, taking particular circumstances into account. Where external agencies are involved, the investigation team will conduct a joint investigation with the external agencies and/or make use of information obtained by external agencies, to the extent possible.

Once all witnesses have been interviewed and prior to the conclusion of the investigation, the investigator/investigation team must give you the opportunity to respond to the allegations and to defend yourself against them.
