Who are the independent misconduct panel members?

Independent misconduct panel members are people who have no relationship with the police service and are required to assist misconduct panels in determining a fair and evidence based judgment about a particular police officer’s conduct and agreeing an appropriate sanction.

Independent members are only required to sit on misconduct hearings (commonly referred to as misconduct panels) arising from a complaint or conduct matter concerning incidents involving the death or serious injury of any person and those in which a member of the public has been adversely affected by the actions of a police officer.
