IPCC Response to Home Office Consultation Paper "Policing in the 21st Century: Reconnecting the police and the people”
Consultation of proposed new statutory guidance for the police service - September 2012
Article 2 of the European Convention of Human Rights - consultation on the scope of the review and proposed methodology - March 2012
We consulted on revisions to our statutory guidance made in response to the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011.
The consultation finished in September 2012.
You can read the feedback we received, along with our responses in this document.
The IPCC intends to carry out a review of its work in cases where Article 2 of the European Convention of Human Rights is engaged. This will include looking at its powers, resources and approach to dealing with these cases.
The aims of the review are:
to take stock after eight years of operation and identify any changes / improvements that are required to our approach, the resources allocated to this area and our powers;
to engage extensively with ALL our stakeholders particularly individuals who have been involved in our work in this area to listen to their views and concerns;
to improve public understanding of our work in this area and thus public confidence.
The review will be carried out by engaging with people who are affected by our work in this area, organisations involved in process and other interested parties.
Before formally starting the review the IPCC would like to consult stakeholders on the scope of the review and the proposed methodology.
We would be grateful for your views on this document and in particular on the following questions:
Do you have any comments on the scope of the review - is there anything else you think should be included?
How would you / your organisation like to be involved with the review?
The IPCC is considering creating a steering group for the review with external stakeholders being represented? Do you think this is the right approach?
What advice and assistance could you offer us to engage with some of the groups we have identified such as families and communities?
Is there anyone else we should be engaging with?
Do you have any other comments on either the scope or the methodology?
Our plan is to consult on the scope and methodology until 20 March 2012. We will then review the feedback we have received and prepare a final draft of the scope for the Commission to consider at its meeting on 4 April 2012.
We will then undertake a programme of work including further consultation, evidence gathering, focus groups, public events and interviews with a variety of stakeholders to conduct the review.
The review will result in a report which will summarise what has come out of the review and will set out recommendations for actions in response. This might include actions for the IPCC and wider actions for the Home Office to consider.
This consultation closed on 20 March 2012 and a Commission paper detailing responses received and changes to scope was considered on 4 April 2012.
