Public Misconduct Hearings

As of 1st May 2015 Police Misconduct Hearings may be heard in public. There will be certain situations where it will be necessary and appropriate for all, or parts of, a police disciplinary or appeal hearing to be held in private. The senior officer or legally-qualified person chairing the panel will make this decision.

We will publish public Police Misconduct Hearings below. Applications to attend can be sent to our Professional Standards Department where they will be considered individually.

The publication of outcome notices from misconduct hearings will be made available to the public on this page for a period of 28 days.
