Who are legally qualified chairs?

Chairs must satisfy the judicial-appointment eligibility condition on a 5-year basis as set out in section 50 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007. A Chair is selected from a list of independent legally qualified persons appointed by Police & Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to conduct misconduct hearings for special constables and police officers (but not senior police officers), and is governed by Police Conduct Regulations.
