Policing and Crime Bill, continued

 
 

(3AB)    

Regulations under this section must include sanctions for disciplinary

 

proceedings in respect of a person defined under subsection (3A).”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment would provide for disciplinary proceedings to take place a specified period after

 

the allegation first comes to light, instead of a limit based on when the person concerned left a

 

police force. It would also provide for this time period to be extended in cases of serious

 

misconduct. It would also allow for proceedings to apply to retrospective cases and provides for

 

sanctions for disciplinary proceedings.
