Police watchdogs to monitor police promotion processes

Leicestershire’s independent police ethics panel is set to review the system for which officers are promoted and selected as part of a commitment to transparency within policing.

Members of Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach’s Ethics, Integrity and Complaints Committee will meet on Friday (20 September) where they will discuss a new report detailing how talent is identified within the Force, the processes of internal promotion and the Force’s performance on increasing diversity and equality across the organisation.

They will also be presented with the latest promotion data showing how the Force is increasing BME representation across higher policing ranks, including Inspector positions.  

Also on the agenda for the meeting will be a series of ethical scenarios requiring discussion and dip sampling of police complaints.

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 2pm on Friday 20 September 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
