Making a complaint about the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner
The Police, Fire and Crime Panel has responsibility for dealing with certain types of complaints against the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner and the Deputy Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
The Elected Local Policing Bodies (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2012 set out the way in which complaints or conduct matters about a Commissioner and a Deputy Commissioner should be handled.
In Staffordshire the county council’s Monitoring Officer has delegated authority to receive and deal with complaints against the Commissioner. The Monitoring Officer is independent and experienced in handling complaints.
The Monitoring Officer will record all complaints in the Recorded Complaints and Conduct Matters Register and consider how they should be handled.
