While the vast majority of police officers conduct themselves well and appropriately, there are occasions where individuals do not. The misconduct process for police officers and special constables is regulated and where there is evidence sufficient to justify action for gross misconduct (where the officer or special constable can be dismissed) a hearing will generally be held in public, chaired by an independent legally qualified individual. Indicative Sanctions Guidance is intended to provide a framework for assessing the seriousness of cases and promote consistency in decision-making. Views and observations in respect of the guidance are sought. A series of questions accompany the guidance. Please provide responses to email@example.com The consultation exercise has now ended.
