Lady pebbles | Police covering up fellow police abuse

I dated an officer for 8 months on the rebound from an abusive relationship. He was nice to start with, but occasional flashes of anger. Outsiders noticed it first. Then one day an incident occured between him and my daughter. I didn’t see him for 2 days after, then he went very strange. We were looking at moving into his house so I pulled that. Ended the relationship as very big warning bells going off. He went away for a week, was messaging being lovely and friends said we would get back together. I stuck to my guns. When we returned I got the rest of my things, moved back home. He turned nasty, threatening me, refusing to return money, telling me I had to leave the village. I had knocks on my door at 5am, his friends came and sat and shouted abuse at me outside my house. He made a pre emptive complaint about me to the police, accused me of associating with a local paedophile (I didnt and he had also made that up about that man, who was the ex of a female friend and no evidence was found against him). Police refused to take it seriously or investigate. Social services said I was too hung up on him to move forward. Doctor was concerned about my child’s nightmares and social services and police blocked her getting help.
