Report of the Commissioner.
The Board received the Commissioner’s public update.
The Commissioner noted that the recent misconduct cases had negatively impacted the public’s trust in policing commenting that the City of London Police needed to remain vigilant to these issues. It was added that any allegations of misconduct or inappropriate behaviour at the City of London Police were taken seriously and expedited without undue delay. Following the Commissioner’s update on the development and implementations of the actions plans from HMICFRS inspections the Deputy Chair requested that a regular update report dealing with all of these should be provided to the Professional Standards and Integrity Committee and the Police Authority Board.
The Chair noted that the Christmas Action Fraud campaign and associated reduction in online shopping fraud displayed the impact that national campaigns can have when effective.
RESOLVED- That the update be noted.
