Police Commissioner and Complaints against the Police

I have been asked more questions about my views on the Police Commissioner and the handling of complaints against the Police. Here is my further response to a member of the Public.

“Thank you for this E Mail. I confirm that I am a candidate for the new Sussex Police Commissioner post. Separately I have been asked about my view of complaints against the Police and how, if elected, I would tackle them . Perhaps as background you would look at an earlier question from a member of the Public in Brighton, my answer and my general pledge on this website.

If elected I will operate strictly in the Public interest on all matters, including when alerted to any complaints about Sussex Police. I will be attending several briefing sessions planned for prospective PCCs and have asked for clarification about the rights of a Police Commissioner to tackle complaints under the remit of “holding to account”. You will know that formally the responsibility belongs to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

I underscore the fact that I see trust, integrity and fairness as a key requirement for the role of the Police Commissioner and therefore I can pledge to you that, if elected, I would want to be absolutely assured that any complaints against anyone involved with Sussex policing – office of constable, PCSO, Special Constable or civilian staff/contractor – were properly investigated and, dealt with, if necessary, under the law.  I hope that this is helpful.”
