Our policies

This page provides you with links to the policies that affect the operation of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC)


Under the Employment Rights Act 1996, workers who suspect wrongdoing in the workplace and disclose their concerns (i.e. a “Whistle Blower”) are protected from dismissal and from being subjected to detrimental treatment or victimisation, provided certain criteria are met. These provisions derive from the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998, which introduced additional sections into the Employment Rights Act 1996.Here you will find our policy outlining how we will deal with our obligations on receipt of disclosure information.

Human resources
The OPCC has a number of policies which deal with employment issues and are a framework for dealing with a variety of issues.
