Professional Standards Department (12628_17)
- What is the remit/ purpose and scope of work undertaken by the West Midlands Police Professional Standards Unit; as it relates to the Police Reform Act 2002?
It would be appreciated if you would answer the following two (2) questions, with a simple `YES’ or `NO’ answer as explanations are not necessary.
- Are West Midlands Police Professional Standards Department staff, immune from complaints made under the Police Reform Act 2002?
- Where West Midlands Police Professional Standards Department staff have undertaken a complaint investigation, and it is subsequently found that their submitted final report is misleading, factually inaccurate and has material omissions, would a complaint made against those particular staff for Honesty and Integrity, be deemed `vexatious, oppressive or otherwise an abuse of the procedures for dealing with complaints?
