Police recruitment under the spotlight at PCC's ethics committee

Police retention and recruitment will be among a series of issues discussed at the next meeting of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Ethics, Integrity and Complaints Committee to be chaired by Professor Cillian Ryan, economist and Pro Vice-Chancellor & Dean of the Faculty of Business & Law at De Montfort University.

The meeting, which is open to the public, provides assurance to both the Police and Crime Commissioner, and the Chief Constable, regarding both the standards of professionalism within the force and that the behaviour and integrity of the county’s police officers remains at the highest level.

Meeting four times a year, the independent panel of members scrutinises issues affecting policing in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland ranging from complaints and professional conduct to matters requiring ethical decisions.
The next meeting, which takes place on Friday <SEP 23> at 2pm, will examine the force’s Positive Action Project, which concentrates on the recruitment, retention, progression and engagement of under-represented groups within Leicestershire Police.

Among other topics on the agenda is a progress report into the new operational policing model Edison which was introduced in the county a year ago to address the challenges of the austerity cuts.

The PCC is committed to building trust in the force by developing a robust ‘check and balance’ system of police decision making and to maintain standards of professionalism and conduct.

The meeting takes place on Friday 23 September 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.
