Police and crime commissioner sets up new complaints panel
 

A group of volunteers will form a new police complaints panel.

 The complaints, integrity and ethics panel has been set up by Thames Valley’s police and crime commissioner (PCC), Anthony Stansfeld.

It will be independent and will evaluate how Thames Valley Police handles complaints.

The PCC said that ‘national concerns over police integrity’ have created a need for an independent body to challenge the police on ethical issues.

This, he says, will maintain the public’s confidence in the police.

He is encouraging people in the Thames Valley to apply to sit on the panel.

To apply, visit www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk.
