POLICE and Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan has welcomed the announcement from the Home Secretary signalling an overhaul of police complaints.

In an address to Parliament Theresa May made it clear that she is to take an in-depth look at misconduct and disciplinary proceedings within the police, whistleblowing and police complaints.

She told MPs she wanted to bring more transparency and independence into the complaints process, and will launch a review of the entire police complaints system, including the role, powers and funding of the Independent Police Complaints Commission and the local role played by Police and Crime Commissioners.

Mrs Mulligan said: “I have been campaigning for reform of police complaints locally and nationally since I started this job in 2012. “
