1.5 CPD Units Videocast    
Knowledge areas:
  • Substantive law

When considering complaints about police misconduct, the provisions of the Law Enforcement (Powers and Responsibilities) Act 2002 (LEPRA) are vital when making any such assessment. What should not be overlooked are the provisions of the Code of Practice for Crime, Code of Conduct and other police documentation relevant to police conduct generally. The intention of this videocast is to provide a case study that practitioners may consider for themselves prior to watching. At the conclusion of the videocast, after the relevant provisions have been considered, participants should view the annotated document (below) showing an analysis of the information provided in the case study.

Practitioners are invited to closely consider the case study prior to watching so as to enable them to ascertain how detailed and accurate their own understanding of both LEPRA and police practice guidelines relevant to police conduct
