Issue 15 of Learning Point, our best practice bulletin, is now available from the PIRC website.

In Issue 15, we look at how to ensure the safety of those being transported in police vehicles, drawing on examples from recent investigations. We also take a closer look at our investigations statistics and offer advice on what information to provide when referring an incident to the PIRCĀ and how this may avoid the need for a full investigation.

Issue 15 also identifies the recurring issues faced by our Review Team when dealing with statements supplied by police officers. Elsewhere, we explore how much enquiry is required when responding to a complaint from a member of the public.
