Police complaints, investigations and misconduct: a consultation on legislation

Closes 16 Aug 2022

Contents

You do not have to answer all questions. You only need to respond to the questions and sections that are relevant to you. You can save and return to your response at any time while the consultation is open. 

The “About You” page is required before submitting your response. Please indicate how you wish your response to be handled and, in particular, whether you are content for your response to be published. If you ask for your response not to be published, it will be treated as confidential.

Responses will be analysed and used as part of the decision making process, along with a range of other available information and evidence. We will publish a report of our analysis for this consultation. 

While details of particular circumstances described in a response to a consultation exercise may usefully inform the policy process, consultation exercises cannot address individual concerns and comments, these should be directed to the relevant public body.
