This seminar, the first ARDL seminar to focus on police disciplinary proceedings, will consider the new legislative and regulatory scheme and other recent developments in police disciplinary proceedings. It is intended to be of interest both to police law specialists and to the wider regulatory community.

A major overhaul of the police complaints and misconduct scheme comes in to force in 2020 effected by the Police (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/2), the Police Appeals Tribunals Rules 2020 (SI 2020/1), the Police (Performance) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/3) and the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/4) and accompanied by new Home Office and IOPC Guidance. The regulations reflect a more streamlined process, with an overarching requirement to handle complaints in a reasonable and proportionate manner.
