NPCC Chair statement on Simon Byrne hearing outcome

“A misconduct hearing found no evidence of misconduct by former Chief Constable Simon Byrne and that the lengthy process could and should have been avoided.

“The panel recommended the NPCC investigate whether a system of formal guidance and mentoring for chief constables should be developed to prevent such a situation in the future. We welcome the suggestion and will work with the College of Policing and the Chief Police Officers Staff Association to do so.”

The Independent Panel’s full report can be accessed here.
