Request from the Chief Constable of West Mercia Police

The Chief Constable of West Mercia has asked Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) to help identify a Chief Constable from another force to act as an ‘Appropriate Authority’ under the Police Reform Act 2002. This is in relation to the conduct of a Police Federation representative from his force over a meeting with Andrew Mitchell MP. We are currently considering this request.
