    Chief Constable of Cumbria v McGlennon [2002] ICR 1156 EAT (0 other reports)

In Chief Constable of Cumbria v McGlennon 15.7.02 EAT 10/01, the EAT holds that, because statute provides that the posting and deployment of officers within a force is under the direction and control of the Chief Constable, the words "any act done by him" in s.17 should be construed to include management decisions on such matters as recruitment and postings taken and carried out by other officers under his or her express or implied authority.
