Police ethics committee to consider Missing From Home

Police responsibility with regard to young people repeatedly reported as ‘missing from home’ will be considered by members Leicestershire’s independent police ethics committee when it meets next week.

Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach’s Ethics, Integrity and Complaints Committee will meet on Friday 14 December at Police HQ.   

Members will be asked to discuss the ethical approach to three very different individuals who have repeatedly been reported as missing from home.  Such ‘ethical dilemmas’ are a regular feature of these meetings, often reaching thought-provoking conclusions.

Other papers on the agenda include a review of complaint and civil claims.

The Ethics, Integrity and Complaints Committee was set up to provide greater accountability to the public of policing processes including the complaints system and hold the Force to account for its decisions.

Meetings are held in public and residents are able to attend and observe proceedings. Minutes are also available on the PCC’s website at: http://www.leics.pcc.police.uk/Transparency/Meetings/Ethics-Integrity-and-Complaints-Meetings/Agenda-and-Papers-Ethics-Committee.aspx

The meeting will take place at 2.00pm on Friday 14 December in the Main Conference Room at Force HQ 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 Nimisha.Padhiar@leics.pcc.pnn.gov.uk
