The chief constable at Avon and Somerset Constabulary has been cleared of all complaints made against him following a seven-month investigation.
Chief Constable Andy Marsh joined the force at the end of 2015.
But in May 2016 it was announced a complaint had been made against him about his role during a child abuse investigation when he was at Hampshire Constabulary.
Avon and Somerset Constabulary’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens was required to appoint a police force to investigate the complaints, which alleged Chief Constable Marsh set up the investigation to protect Hampshire police.
Essex Constabulary has now concluded its investigation, and cleared him of any wrongdoing.
