Complaints against officers
Equin0x posted a topic in General Policing DiscussionsOf the complaints you've seen made against officers for things like stop and search, use of force, and arrests, how many are justified or at least partly justified (maybe the officer is in the right but you can see why the complaint was made) compared to completely unjustified complaints with no grounds whatsoever? What happens to an officer if they carry out an unreasonable search, complaint is made, and the complaint is upheld/the person reviewing the BWV agrees the grounds for that search were not there. I'm assuming it can depend on a few things, such as if it's the first such incident for that officer, was it blatantly unreasonable or just pushing the boundaries a little bit.
Dealing with complaints.
AV88 posted a topic in General Policing DiscussionsI am a newbie cop and still within my first two year probation period. A general query here in relation to complaints. I have had a couple of silly complaints now, they are total rubbish and based on complete rubbish. The first one I heard nothing about and the second one has been allocated locally. I was wondering at what point do you completely switch off from them? As I am new they cause slight anxiety.

Police Misconduct Published by Police Service Website
Dash posted a topic in General Policing DiscussionsI was recently browsing my local Police Service website and found that they publish the complaint information about the Police Officers. I thought this was a really good idea. Are there any other trains of thought out there? West Midlands Police Service
Complaints against police reach a record high
SimonT + posted a topic in UK Policing Newshttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31088778 The number of complaints made against police in England and Wales has reached a record high. There were 34,863 cases involving complaints in 2013-14, figures from the Independent Police Complaints Commission show. The figures show a 15% increase on the previous year - and the highest since the IPCC was established in 2004. The IPCC says the rise was clear in the majority of police forces. Strangely short piece by the BBC who usually like to get a few jabs in against police. Some commentators might suggest that as we have substantially fewer officers and resources and an ever increasing demand in incidents which take more and more time as other agencies fall by the wayside that we are increasingly unable to meet expectations, are overworked and under increasing pressure. Leading to officers being more direct and honest with people about our and the public's failings and the public getting less of the service they expect and having to wait longer for it. Or, as most will probably suggest, police are bully body or girls and should all be done over.
