Dorset PCC Backs Reform To Police Complaints Commission
1:56pm 15th March 2013
Dorset's Police and Crime Commissioner has giving his backing to Government plans to reform the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
The IPCC is being expanded to deal with all serious complaints against the Police - they'll also be a new code of ethics and tougher rules around misconduct hearings.
Dorset PCC Martyn Underhill says it's right that the Police are investigated by an independent body.
He's also praised the fact the IPPC will also have the power to investigate private companies working on behalf of the Police.
