Who else sits on misconduct panels and how are they selected for a hearing?

A panel is made up of three individuals;

  • the Chair, who is an independent legally qualified professional,
  • an independent member of the public (independent panel member), and
  • a senior police officer who represents the local police force in conduct matters. As a general principle, appointments to a particular hearing will be conducted on a rota basis, with the next person on the list being appointed to serve on a hearing. This is to ensure that the process is fair.
