Police Authority (Amendment No.2) Regulations 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 18 December 2010

The Regulations extend the circumstances in which a police authority is not required to advertise for independent members. A police authority may fill a vacancy from an old application if there are at least twice the number of applicants as there are vacancies and if the vacancy occurs within five years of the last advertisement. The Regulations can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
