From Checkpoint, 5:35 pm on 14 November 2019

Former inspector Hurimoana Dennis is standing by his actions and insists he was a good cop, despite scathing reports revealing he abused his power as well as unlawfully detaining a teenager in 2015.

The Independent Police Conduct Authority has released two reports into Mr Dennis that highlight serious misconduct on more than one occasion.
