Conduct & Performance
PFEW’s conduct and performance sub-committee is responsible for all matters relating to professional standards, misconduct, discipline, and unsatisfactory performance in relation to officers of the federated ranks, including liaising at a strategic level with key stakeholders.
It meets five times per year and reports directly to the National Board. The sub-committee arranges and coordinates two seminars per year for Conduct and Performance Liaison Officers. On the following pages you will find details of the sub-committee members, branch conduct lead details, news, updates and related documents.
Priorities for 2020/2021 are:
- Committee members will engage and participate in scheduled meetings with stakeholders, such as National Police Chiefs’ Council, Independent Office for Police Conduct and College of Policing to engage, consult, negotiate and influence all future proposals relating to conduct and performance matters;
- The committee will work alongside the parliamentary sub-committee to highlight and seek change in legislation to bring about a time limit of investigations into police conduct by way of the #TimeLimits campaign;
- The committee will work with the College of Policing to bring in guidance for all forces to use in risk assessing officers under misconduct;
- The committee will continue to use technology in delivering continued CPD to branch conduct leads and workplace representatives, so they have the most up to date skills and case reference to represent members.
