Make a Complaint

Complaints about police officers and staff of Lincolnshire Police

If you wish to make a complaint about a police officer/staff member or in relation to the delivery of policing services then you can do so by clicking on the following link Here. The Independent Office for Police Conduct has produced a public guide to the police complaints system. A copy of the guidance can be accessed Here.

 

Complaints about the Police and Crime Commissioner

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) represent their local communities and must conduct themselves in a way that does not discredit their office. PCCs are subject to a Code of Conduct that sets out the expected standards of personal conduct and ethical standards of behaviour.

A copy of the Code of Conduct for the Lincolnshire PCC is Here

If you have a complaint that the PCC has breached the Code of Conduct then the appropriate authority to handle that complaint is the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Panel (LPCP). However, the LPCP has delegated its authority to the PCC’s Chief Executive to determine whether allegations made against the PCC should be recorded as complaints. A full copy of the LPCP complaints procedure can be accessed Here

If you wish to make a complaint against the PCC, then you can do this in the following ways:

Phone: 01522 947192  (Note: In these circumstances, it will be necessary to make an appointment to either have the details of your complaint transcribed, or you could attend and outline your complaint in person)

Complaints about the Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police

Lincolnshire Police, under the direction and control of the Chief Constable, has operational independence and is accountable to the law for the exercise of police powers. However, the Chief Constable is also accountable to the PCC for the delivery of efficient and effective policing, management of resources and expenditure, and ultimately the delivery of policing in the county.

The PCC is responsible for holding the Chief Constable to account for how policing services are delivered. The PCC is also responsible (as the ‘appropriate authority’) for any complaints, conduct matters, or Death or Serious Injury matters involving the officer (or any acting Chief Constable).

If you wish to make a complaint about the Chief Constable then you can do so in the following ways:

Phone: 01522 947192 (Note: In these circumstances, it will be necessary to make an appointment to either have the details of your complaint transcribed, or you could attend and outline your complaint in person)

Email: complaints-pcc@lincs.pnn.police.uk

Or write to:

The Police and Crime Commissioner, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner For Lincolnshire, Deepdale Lane, Nettleham, near Lincoln, LN2 2LT
