Stop and search progress examined at PCC's ethics committee

Police use of stop and search powers will be among a series of issues discussed at the next ethics meeting hosted by Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Bach.

The PCC’s Ethics, Integrity and Complaints Committee, which is open to the public, takes place on Friday 24 March at Force HQ in Enderby and will cover a range of issues including the latest stop and search monitoring data, social media, safeguarding matters involving adults and children and police complaints. 

The committee was developed to monitor standards of professionalism within the force and to build public trust and confidence in policing. It is one of the ways in which the PCC achieves accountability and ensures the highest level of integrity and professionalism is maintained.

The independent panel of members, which meets regularly, scrutinises issues affecting policing in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland from complaints and professional conduct to matters requiring ethical decisions. 

Meetings are held in public to promote openness and transparency and to enable residents to listens to discussions on policing standards. 

The meeting takes place on Friday at 2pm in the main conference room at Police Headquarters in Enderby.

Please note that due to the capacity of the room and for health and safety requirements all potential attendees are requested to notify Sue Walsh, Executive Support Manager, Leicestershire Police - email Susan.walsh@leicestershire.pnn.police.uk.
