Misconduct Hearings

Thames Valley Police will publish information about public misconduct or special case hearings here.

From 1 May 2015, in accordance with new legislation, all misconduct or special case hearings should be held in public to improve transparency and accountability and ensure public confidence.

From 1 January 2016, misconduct hearings will be heard by a panel of three consisting of a legally qualified Chair who will be assisted by a senior police officer and an independent lay person. The facts will be heard by the panel, often with the assistance of live witnesses to enable the panel to make a determination. If the officer is found to have committed gross misconduct the available sanctions are:

  • Dismissal without notice
  • Dismissal with notice
  • Final Written Warning
  • Written warning
  • Management advice
