Appointment of Legally Qualified Chairs to serve on Police Misconduct Panels
From 2016, in response to changes to legislation, legally qualified chairs will replace police personnel on Police Misconduct Panels. These Panels preside over serious misconduct cases, in what is an important aspect of the disciplinary rules that govern the police in England and Wales.
The Hampshire, Kent, Thames Valley, Surrey & Sussex Police & Crime Commissioners are undertaking a joint recruitment exercise for legally qualified Chairs who may be appointed to preside over police officer gross misconduct hearings for one or more of their policing areas.
Applications are sought from qualified lawyers. More information and the application form can be found on Vacancies
