Policies, plans and strategy

Our policies outline the parameters within which staff will act to achieve the force's aims. They outline what is expected of our staff in respect of a variety of issues and why. Activities governed by legislation are not normally replicated in force policy.

It should be noted that some of the material in this class contains exempt information which, in the public interest, should not be published.

Typically information may be withheld if its release would compromise the health and safety of staff, investigations and proceedings and law enforcement more generally.

Further details of information which can be exempted are contained in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). The precise definitions are given in the Act for which we have also provided a link.
