Police Disciplinary Appointment

Chambers is pleased to announce that Michael Salter has been appointed as one of the country’s first Legally Qualified Chairs of Police Disciplinary Tribunals. In response to changes in legislation from 1st January 2016 legally qualified Chairs will replace Police Chairs on Police Misconduct Panels. These Panels determine serious misconduct allegations against the police and are part of a comprehensive overhaul of the police disciplinary system. The appointment builds on Michael’s experience as a member of professional disciplinary tribunals and his appointment as a Disciplinary Assessor for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. The appointment further strengthens Chambers expertise in the areas of Police Law and Professional Regulation.
