Independent Office for Police Conduct: Public body review 2024

College of Policing CEO Chief Constable Andy Marsh responds to the independent review of the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) under the Public Bodies Review Programme. This was led by the reviewer Dr Gillian Fairfield from March 2023 to late December 2023


“The dedicated and hardworking people working in policing face decisions and risks most people will never have to experience. We rely on these colleagues to keep us safe, and so it is important they feel supported in their roles.

“I am grateful to the Home Secretary for publishing this review, which provides further clarity on how policing is rightly held to account within a system which also recognises the significant additional risks officers face.

“We will continue to work with others in criminal justice to ensure the system delivers a high level of accountability for officers, while avoiding unnecessary burdens due to a lack of legal clarity.”
