New police complaints panel for Thames Valley

First published in News

A NEW police complaints panel is to be set up in the Thames Valley because of national concerns over the integrity of the force – and volunteers from the area are needed to join it.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, has announced that the Complaints, Integrity and Ethics Panel is to be established.

It is intended to provide a “transparent forum that monitors and encourages constructive challenge over the way complaints, integrity and ethics issues are handled by Thames Valley Police and overseen by the PCC”

The panel will be made up of a group of independent volunteers and the PCC is currently looking for people to apply.

Mr Stansfeld said: “Due to the current national concerns over police integrity there is now an accepted need for the development of a robust, independent and transparent system to be established.

“I have decided to set up this Panel to ensure that integrity and ethical issues are prioritised in order to maintain public confidence in policing.”

Anybody interested in becoming a member of the Complaints, Integrity and Ethics Panel can find out more information, including details on eligibility, by going to www.thamesvalley-pcc.gov.uk or calling 01865 846782 The closing date for applications is 12pm on Friday, January 31.

This bloke is a jerk. There is already the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) set up by national Govt which sets out to achieve just this. .... what does this extra level of bureaucracy actually going to do other than slow things down. .... and while I'm at it, I'd like to make a complaint !! ... that my hard earned tax is being wasted on 'spin' creating activities such as this when what I actually want is something done about crime! Don't worry about the coppers, doing their best under the most difficult of circumstances, for a judiciary so out of touch that has lead most people to now believe, that crime DOES pay. (looks down, sighs and shakes head).

Just a job for some of his mates, no doubt !. Attendance allowance plus expenses that will do nicely for now . It will be another completely useless toothless Quango and another unnecessary level of bureaucracy ,just like having a Police and Crime Commissioner ,If he cant do the job then he should resign forthwith !. If not sooner.

I would doubt If there is a Police officer of any rank in the Thames Valley that thinks that we need a Crime And Police Commissioner . They have been put in place so that the Government have a Whipping Boy in place for when their policies go wrong and they can blame the Crime and Police Commissioner . And of course the Idiots that voted for him.!
