FedCast 2: Advice for members on conduct and discipline

21 February 2019

Fedcast

 

Supporting members through difficult times is one of the main reasons we exist. More often than not, those difficult times stem from unfounded conduct or performance complaints.

Episode two in our podcast series shines a light on our work in this area and offers advice to members should they find themselves under investigation.

Listen to National Chair John Apter, Conduct and Performance Lead Phill Matthews, and broadcaster Ian Collins discussing the following topics:

  • New discipline regulations
  • Unfounded cases/complaints
  • Our relationship with the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC)
  • Long investigations and mental health
  • Moving towards a performance/learning culture
  • Support available for members from the Fed
  • Advice for members
  • Questions from members

Other topics covered include, our relationship with the Government, police funding and the question of industrial rights for police officers.

How to listen to our FedCasts

Listening to a podcast is similar to listening to a radio programme. It is a digital audio file that can be streamed or downloaded from the internet and listened to on various digital devices and through numerous online services. A lot of people listen on their phone, but you can also listen on a desktop PC.
