Guidelines for the Use of Section 38 Powers Between the Police & Crime Commissioners and Chief Constables (the Guidelines’) came before the July 2014 Annual General Meeting of the Association of Police & Crime Commissioners (APCC).
The Association resolved to circulate the guidelines with an invitation for PCCs to discuss with Chief Constables and agree upon on a local approach.
In so doing, the Association emphasise that the guidelines are not a national agreement between the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners and the Chief Police Officers Staff Association
In recording my response reached in conjunction with the Chief Constable, I would like to state that t am not contemplating the use of s38 at the present time.
The Guidelines are attached to this decision notice
