Independent Members for Police Misconduct Hearings and Police Appeals Tribunals 

Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), is seeking to recruit new Independent Members for Police Misconduct Hearings and Police Appeals Tribunals.

Police Misconduct Hearing panels are arranged to hear allegations of serious cases of misconduct by police officers or special constables.

Police Appeal Tribunal panels are arranged on request of police officers who have a right of appeal against findings made under the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2020 or the Police (Performance) Regulations 2020. 

Independent Members are paid a daily allowance and are entitled to claim for travel expenses incurred on Independent Member business.

As well as being supported through training and development sessions, Independent Members will be invited to sit on approximately three panel hearings per year in the West Yorkshire area although there may be opportunities to sit on panels in other regions across the north of England. 

Hearings are often concluded in one day but this will depend on the complexity of the case being heard.  In addition to the hearings there is also a level of preparatory work to be untaken e.g. reading relevant papers, reports and background information. Independent Members are asked for their availability in advance and can choose which days to work. 

Potential applicants will need to be over 18 years of age at the time of appointment, complete a personal information questionnaire, providing proof of identity and residence. There is also a requirement to be available to attend two half day training sessions on the afternoons of 16 and 17 November 2020.
The closing date for applications is 30 September 2020.
