Special report concerning allegations about the conduct of Sir Ken Jones QPM

This report presents detailed findings of a thorough review of previous investigations by the Office of Police Integrity (OPI), into the conduct of Sir Ken Jones QPM. The report was prepared by the Hon Murray Kellam AO QC. Mr Kellam, a former Justice of Victoria’s Court of Appeal and the current Chief Commissioner of Tasmania’s Integrity Commission.

Mr Kellam’s review concluded that the evidence available to OPI and set out in OPI’s final investigation report to the Ombudsman did not support an allegation that Sir Ken Jones QPM had engaged in serious misconduct by leaking or facilitating leaking to the media of confidential police information.

Mr Kellam further determined that it is not in the public interest for the OPI investigation report to be provided to Parliament, nor for IBAC itself to further investigate the matter.
