You can complaint direct to their feedback unit or take it to AG office for inappropriate behaviour of a policeman or direct to Police Commissioner office if you feel the feedback unit has not responded to you in a timely manner or their responses is in adequate
Please remember you must take note all comms , charge sheet, IO name offence under what Penal Code so forth
It can blow in your face if you do not do this properly
If you find there is a miscarriage of justice by the IO and there was no recourse, AG Office is your next step and the Minister for Law

Thanks for this, Mad Scientist: I will read through it. They have not given me any copies of statements, etc. The IO has not even briefed me on what charges, etc. I have nothing from them except a generic mail I received 2 weeks later after the incident (letter dated April 2, incident happened April 1 evening) - saying they are in the process of gathering information, etc. and will let me know if there is any progress.

X9200:

Yeah - none of us never left the house. We were all together. They could have searched us right then and there. They could have searched our rooms or the flat. It's a lot of money, if it was hidden there, they would have probably found it.

That's exactly what the forensic guy told him. I was there when he was asking him:
Forensic Guy: Who else knew you had that money other than you? Did you tell anyone?
Male Guest: No one else.
FG: Who else would know where you'd put your money?
MG: No one else.
FH: So how? Why would you have that kind of money just here anyway? That's a huge amount! (and made a WTF expression at him and pointed at his mind, implying what was he thinking?)

Thank you for your advice regarding the complaint. I think writing it now will help balance the whole message. I wrote a draft the next day after it happened and I'm sure it was very emotional. Glad that I did not send it then.

Not that I am trying to discourage the OP in OP's scenario (assuming if OP wants to find out who actually stole the $3k). I have a friend who used to be in the police force for more than 10 years and he's shared the ins and outs of the police force and the sort of investigations they prioritise. As for OP having to find out who stole the money it will be a long time, possibly even never knowing the outcome of the investigation. The amount stolen in the eyes of the police is considered small. Secondly forensics take orders from police authorities as to which case is considered priority. obviously cases where lives are taken (murder cases) are given the highest priority as do drug-related cases. Lastly OP's case is, to the police, my word against yours kinda scenario. That's because there's no camera in the house and OP's flatmates can finger point at anyone but until forensics look into the fingerprints collected the culprit will never be known. As for OP being threatened for being a suspect, that's a tactic that's normally employed by the police to force the truth out. Someone I know was robbed of S$30k in broad-daylight on his way home from his shop in L'India. That was 10 years ago. Till today the police still have not caught the suspects, who were all interestingly, caught on cam.
