Job Details

The Police and Crime Commissioner is recruiting for Independent Panel Members for both Police Misconduct Hearings and Police Appeals Tribunals.

Independent Panel Members (IPM) are required to assist misconduct hearings, which are usually held in public and Police Appeal Tribunals, in determining a fair and evidence based judgment about a particular officer’s conduct and agreeing an appropriate sanction. With the other members, the Independent Panel Member considers evidence from witnesses, hears submissions from parties to the hearing and makes informed decisions as to the outcome. They must have the ability to challenge the other Panel members in a constructive but non-confrontational manner.

One of the key roles of the Independent Panel Member is to reassure the community that police
misconduct matters are dealt with properly and are independently adjudicated.
