Please provide me with an up to date copy of the Complaint Document that this Force provides to people who should raise a Complaint against a member of Police Staff (be that Police Officers or otherwise). The Document I would like to see is (I am advised) a template Document that will cite the Regulation to which it refers, that the Force will complete with details of the Complaint that has been made, which will include its Force Reference number and details of the said Complaint(s) and against whom. I believe the Document I would like to see may be the one referred to in Section 15 (1) (a) of the Police (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations
2012, which came into effect on 22 November 2012.
Please find attached our response, which has been provided by our Professional Standards Department and we believe is the document you are referring to.
