Independent Members of Misconduct Panels
Police and Crime Commissioners are required to compile and maintain lists of independent people to sit on police misconduct panels. This follows a government decision that there should be an independent person on each panel which hears police misconduct cases.
The Police and Crime Commissioners in the Northern Region (North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, Cleveland, Durham, Humberside and Lincolnshire) operate a joint list of independent members and members may have the opportunity to sit on panels outside of West Yorkshire.
The main role of independent members will be to provide an impartial voice on misconduct panels and to assist panels in coming to fair and evidence based judgements about a police officer's conduct and deciding on an appropriate sanction.
You can find out more about the role of Independent Misconduct Panel members below. Please note - we are not currently recruiting.

Channel Intervention Provider
Channel is a safeguarding process which provides support across the country to those who may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. The overall aim of the programme is early intervention to divert people away from the risk(s) they may face. The process includes a wide range of agencies and local partners working together to provide support for individuals. Where appropriate, a Channel Panel made of representatives from these agencies will ask an Intervention Provider to provide support for the vulnerable individual as part of this process.
Intervention Providers can be individuals or part of a wider organisation which can help a vulnerable individual. The support they provide is always tailored to the specific needs of the individual following assessment by the panel. Channel provides numerous forms of support for the individual such as life skills, anger management sessions, cognitive / behavioural therapy, education skills and theological / ideological mentoring.
Numerous intervention providers offer a range of experience, languages and specialisms. Areas where there are current opportunities for this kind of support in the North East are for people with experience and knowledge of the Extreme Right Wing, Shia Islam and the Afghan Community. If you feel you have the experience and knowledge of the areas mentioned and would like to apply to be an intervention provider or would like to know more please contact:
