Professional Standards Directorate (PSD) Misconduct hearings

Share by emailShare by email

A misconduct hearing takes place when it is alleged that a police officer, staff member or Special Constable has breached Nottinghamshire Police’s standards of professional behaviour.

At the hearing, the facts of the case will be presented and the individual involved will have the opportunity to explain their conduct and the circumstances surrounding the allegation or allegations.

The hearing will then reach its outcome, which may result in the individual being dismissed, given a written warning, receiving management advice or the individual being cleared of the allegations made against them.

Use of force

Share by emailShare by email

Police officers are frequently required to deal with conflict situations. Many of these are resolved using well-chosen and appropriate words and by managing human interaction.

Others require varying degrees of physical force, including, on occasions, the use of firearms by Authorised Firearms Officers. This proportionate response is a well-established and necessary approach to managing conflict in a democratic society.

The Criminal Law Act 1967, the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 and common law apply to all uses of force by the police and require that any use of force should be ‘reasonable’ in the circumstances.

Reasonable in these circumstances means:

  • Absolutely necessary for a purpose permitted by law
  • The amount of force used must also be reasonable and proportionate (i.e. the degree of force used must be the minimum required in the circumstances to achieve the lawful objective), otherwise, it is likely that the use of force will be excessive and unlawful.

From 1 April 2017 to 30 June 2017, there were 44,674 incidents that required attendance by an officer. From those incidents 395 resulted in officers having to use force which represents 0.88% of the total number of incidents attended.

Summarised above is a summarised breakdown of the data recorded around force used by Nottinghamshire officers. More detailed information is also available to download here.
