Director of Public Affairs for the Metropolitan Police Service from 1997, Fedorcio resigned from the position in March 2012 after the force opened disciplinary proceedings against him. An inquiry by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) into Fedorcio's award of a contract to Neil Wallis, the former deputy editor of the News of the World, found he had a case to answer for gross misconduct. Fedorcio had earlier given evidence to the Inquiry about his connections with News of the World reporters.
