Questions on matters relating to the work of the Board



In response to a question regarding what level of resources would be appropriate to overcome the current backlog of vetting within the Force, the Assistant Commissioner replied that 123 applications were currently being considered, ranging from basic vetting up to Developed Vetting. Cases were prioritised according to operational need and a further vetting officer was being recruited to assist with current cases. The Chairman added that it was often the case that applicants were also tardy in supplying information in a timely fashion, which lent delays to the process.
