Public Order Bill

Report of the Remembrancer.


The Board received a report of the Remembrancer regarding the Public Oder Bill.   

Following a Member’s query it was clarified that Officers were not aware of any concerns voiced during the Parliamentary processes at this stage but that it would be confirmed if this understanding was not correct. 


The Board noted that whilst the increased powers in the Bill were a useful tool for public order policing appropriate proportionality and caution in their use was important to maintain positive relationship with the public. 


RESOLVED- That the report be noted.
