Appealing to the Police Appeals Tribunal
The Police Appeals Tribunal hears appeals against the findings and sanctions at misconduct hearings.
An officer can request an appeal on one or more of the following grounds: –
- The finding or the decision to impose disciplinary action was unreasonable.
- That there is evidence that could not reasonably have been considered at the original hearing which could have materially affected the finding or decision on disciplinary action.
- There was a breach of the procedures set out in the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2020 or unfairness which could have materially affected the finding or decision on disciplinary action.
The Police Appeals Tribunal process
You are entitled to have legal representation for the appeal. If you instruct us to act on your behalf we will put together a strong case, looking at any flaws in the original decision and putting forward solid grounds for appeal.
At Taylor Law we understand the seriousness of a misconduct finding against a police officer. You can be assured that we will do everything we can to reverse any negative finding against you. Our team has leading knowledge and understanding of police disciplinary matters, to include the process that should be followed and how to bring a strong appeal case.
