Details of the case were submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service by Dorset Police but Miss Carpenter was not prosecuted because the CPS said there was “insufficient evidence”.
Miss Carpenter has since resigned from the force.
Mr Medland said he was also in the process of setting up an e-petition calling for action from the Government.
And he said he and David’s family were keen to emphasise their support for Dorset Police.
“Our frustration is with the CPS who won’t prosecute unless they have a 100 per cent chance of winning – even if prosecuting is the right thing to do,” he added.

Lawyer Jocelyn Cockburn, who handles cases involving complaints against police, said there were risks in letting officers avoid sanctions by leaving. "If they are allowed to leave the police without any stain on their character then there is the chance they will go and work in another force, and that does happen," she said.

Officers are not held to the same standards as the public. I believe the reason is to attract a certain personalty to the police forces.
