Annual Report on Professional Standards Activity - 2015/16

Report of the Commissioner



The Committee received a report of the Commissioner providing a comprehensive overview of activities relating to Police Professional Standards during the period April 2015 to March 2016.


The report also provided a summary of performance statistics submitted annually to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). Overall the

recorded number of complaint cases had increased very slightly in this period. This was attributable to additional complaints relating to Action Fraud, the fraud reporting authority run by the Force which had a national remit. Figures were low relative to the number of interactions with the public and to the complaint figures for other Forces.


The CoLP had performed well in terms of recording complaint cases within the target of 10 days (94% against a national average of 88%) and the time taken to complete an investigation was also lower than the national average (53 days compared to the national average of 107 days).

RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
