Places at misconduct hearings are limited and need to be booked in advance.
You need to book before 8am the day before the hearing (8am on the Friday if the hearing is to start on the Monday).
Please also note the following about attending a hearing:
You must produce photographic ID (passport or driving licence) and failure to do so will result in exclusion from the hearing (unless prior agreement is sought).
If you have not registered to attend in advance of the hearing, admittance will be declined.
People arriving late may not be allowed entry into the hearing.
Hearings are held on police premises and you will be searched before entry to ensure the safety of you and all attendees.
Anyone who is believed to present a security risk to the Force may not be allowed access to police premises.
Travel and attendance is in your own time and at your own expense.
Parking is available in the visitor parking bays only.
Refreshments are not provided and food and drink are not allowed in the hearing.
Electrical devices (phones, tablets, laptops etc) are to be switched off in the hearing.
Photographing and audio/video recording of the hearing, or whilst on police premises, is not permitted.
Any behaviour that does, or is likely to interfere with the proper conduct of proceedings may result in you being required to leave.
At the discretion of the chair, you may be required to leave part of the hearing, as rules governing the conduct of proceedings allow for all or part of the hearing not to be held in public.
The chair may impose restrictions on reporting.
Those under the age of 18 will not be permitted to attend.
Animals will not be permitted, with the exception of guide dogs/assistance dogs.
Wherever possible venues will be selected to allow disabled access but this cannot be guaranteed.
The Force reserves the right to decline attendance where numbers are restricted due to venue capacity. The Force may also offer places to members of the public who have not previously attended a hearing in favour of those who have already done so.
Officers and staff of Leicestershire Police will only be permitted to attend on rest days or whilst off duty.
