John Mauger has used Freedom of Information (FOI) legislation to grill the single force about a range of controversial topics, including the qualifications held by his fellow assistant chief constables.

Mauger, 52, served at the Metropolitan and Essex forces before becoming second in command at Central Scotland police in 2009.
