Police Misconduct Independent Panel Members (IPM)

The Police and Crime Commissioners for the Eastern Region are seeking to recruit up to 20 Independent Panel Members (IPM) to hear police misconduct hearings from across the region. The successful candidates will sit alongside Legally Qualified Chairs and senior police officers as part of a panel of three. They will hear cases involving officers from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies.

Misconduct Hearing Panels involve serious misconduct cases and are an important aspect of the disciplinary rules that govern the police, helping to ensure public trust and confidence is maintained.

Applications are sought from individuals who can demonstrate integrity and independence of mind, commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, sound judgement and an objective approach to the issues presented.

Successful candidates will be part of a list of 20 IPMs who will be selected to sit on hearings across the region. These hearings can last a few days and it is expected that members of the panel will have sufficient availability to undertake this work. Training is provided and attendance is expected from IPM.

If you would like to discuss the role please contact Darren Horsman at the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner’s Office for Essex on 07967 821067 or [email protected].

Interviews are scheduled to take place on the week commencing the 4th of March at the Civic Centre in Chelmsford, though some flexibility on dates may be possible. The deadline for applications is midnight Sunday 28th January 2024.

We are proud to be committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications. To download an application pack please use the links below. Completed application packs should be sent to [email protected].
