An unnamed Police Officer talked to Moira Dingle in February 2016 after Noah Dingle ran away. Moira showed the police officer photos of Noah and whilst talking Noah returned home. The police officer advised Noah not to pull another stunt like that again as wasting police time is a serious matter. Four and a half months later, the police officer talked to Moira's husband Cain Dingle about the assault on Jermaine Bailey. Cain denied any involvement, and managed to get step-daughter Holly Barton to sneak his bloodstained shirt out of the house. In September 2016, the police officer arrested Frank Clayton after he was found in possession of Eric Pollard's bankcard, although this had been planted by Frank's daughter Tracy Shankley.
