Making a Complaint about the Police and Crime Commissioner or Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner

The Police and Crime Panel (PCP) is responsible for handling complaints made against the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) or the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner (DPCC). At its meeting on 24 January 2014, the PCP agreed protocols for how it would handle such complaints.

If you wish to make a complaint regarding the alleged conduct, including alleged criminal conduct, of the PCC/DPCC, you should send your complaint to:

Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire,
St George's Chambers,
St George's Street,
Winchester,
Hampshire,
SO23 8AJ

opcc.complaints@hampshire.pnn.police.uk

Telephone: 01962 871595

Please be aware that although your complaint will be received by the Chief Executive to the PCC, they are required to refer complaints of alleged criminal conduct to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

In respect of other complaints, where the Chief Executive determines that they properly fall within the responsibility of the PCP, they will record the complaint and will refer the matter to the Complaints Sub-Committee of the PCP which:

Whichever path is followed, the complaints process ends when the parties are notified of the outcome reached by the Sub-Committee. The Sub-Committee will then decide whether to publish the outcome of the complaint after considering the parties’ views about this.

Where the complaint does not fall within the responsibility of the PCP, for example, it relates to an issue of policing, the Chief Executive will contact you to confirm how the matter will be handled.
