Police Authority and Metropolitan Police Authority (Amendment) Regulations 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 26 April 2010

The Regulations provide that selection panels that shortlist candidates for appointment as independent members of a police authority may act with one fewer than their full number if at least one week’s notice of the meeting in question has been given, a panel member has died, or a panel member has consented in writing to the other members acting in his or her absence. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
