Special procedures

As outlined in part 3 of the Police (Complaints and Misconduct Regulations) 2020, these procedures are used to protect the rights of a member of a police force or special constable who is being investigated for a serious matter.  

Special procedures only apply when there is an indication that the accused person:  

  • may have committed a criminal offence; or  
  • has behaved in a way that would justify disciplinary proceedings.
