Police Misconduct Meetings & Hearings
Complimenting our training course for Investigations in Professional Standards, the two-day Sancus Police Misconduct Meetings and Hearings course takes time to focus solely on misconduct proceedings that can be the result of an investigation. There is considerable legislation and statutory guidance on the subject of misconduct meetings and hearings but few opportunities to practice the procedure before undertaking a live case, sometimes now with members of the public in attendance.
Examinations of findings demonstrate that not all cases could or should have been dealt with in the manner in which they were. As well as looking at the mechanics involved the misconduct meetings and hearings course also examines the decision making process leading to the misconduct choices.
With legislative change having already occurred and more change on the horizon this is a good time to take stock of your framework and ensure that it delivers the best possible outcomes in a timely manner and according with legal requirements.
The Sancus Police Misconduct Meetings & Hearings course comprises legislative and guidance presentations from a former Head of Professional Standards. It also includes discussions of alternative decision making options and legislation interpretation. And finally a practical exercise that involves the delegates in co-ordinating and handling a misconduct case through the various stages and empowers delegates to convene and manage misconduct meetings and hearings.

“I thought the course content was brilliant, and will assist those who are Chairing Meetings very well. My role is slightly different as a Hearings Officer – but I have picked up a significant amount of information that will assist me with my job. Although a few things were different to how Lancashire do them, we are keen for follow ‘best practice’ and have taken a lot from the course, and will be adopting these for our Force”
