Independent members for police misconduct hearings for South East region force areas

The Offices of the Police and Crime Commissioners for Surrey and Sussex are seeking independent people to sit as independent members on police gross-misconduct hearings. Although you will be appointed by the Surrey or Sussex Offices, there is an expectation that you would be asked to attend hearings in the other South East force areas from time to time.

Suitable candidates should be:

  • Good communicators
  • Able to analyse and absorb complex information
  • Committed to the principles of accountability, probity, confidentiality and equality of opportunity
  • Objective and impartial
  • Ideally experienced in tribunals, disciplinary procedures or other personnel processes.

You must live or work in the South East region (Hampshire, Kent, Thames Valley, Surrey or Sussex), although in this instance preference will be given to those living or working in Surrey or Sussex, and be over 18 years old. Time commitment will vary, but an average of eight to ten days per year to attend hearings is anticipated.  The appointments will be for a term of four years and an allowance and expenses will be paid. 

The Office’s of the Police and Crime Commissioners for Surrey and Sussex value difference and recognise that diverse teams produce better results. We welcome applications from all eligible persons irrespective of age, gender, ethnic origin, religious belief, disability, or sexual orientation.
